The crew was just amazing. You can tell they're passionate about their job and really want to meet new people.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
The food is SO good. I've been on two other cruises with different cruise lines and they were not nearly as good as this one. Every dish in the dining room I had was tasty and aesthetically appealing. The buffet was so-so. It was good for a snack but not the most amazing.

The entertainment was pretty good. Since this leaves out of Spain, there's a lot of Spanish influence in the acts. The music and dancing and shows are geared towards that. You can find other types of music but it's not in the most apparent areas.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
The staff went above and beyond to ensure our trip was the best. I enjoyed seeing the same smiling faces everyday and participating in the activities.

Also, the ship was so clean and well maintained. Again, you could tell the crew really wanted to show off their grand ship.
Cabin / Stateroom

The decor is ready to be updated but is in good condition.
We went on an excursion that took us to a few lookout points and then dropped us back in the city for a wine tasting. We found out later that we could have done the wine tasting on our own by just walking into it since it was centrally located. We probably saw more of Funchal than we would have otherwise but you can also rent a car for a few hours and get the exact same experience.
Don't Miss: the Mercado
If you like wine, there's an amazing wine tour. We spent the whole day on the tour and had an amazing time. You see a lot of the island and experience some of the rarest wines in the world.
Don't Miss: You have to get a ride to the town, it's like a 5 mile walk.
Bring your swimsuits. The beach is the most popular place to go and it's gorgeous. Also, spend some time siting by the port at a little cafe. There's also a free Christopher Columbus museum that's set in a cute little area.
Don't Miss: The beach is gorgeous!
Pros: So much to do on board, crew is so nice and accommodating
