Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
One brochure said largest staterooms - no bigger than any other ship in our opinion.

Ship tip

Be prepared for a small ship / passengers but a large degree of service - one crew for every 2 passengers!

If you did not park at the hotel ($44 / night) or take the post cruise tour, you were on your own getting to your garage
