Great dining and helpful staff... only drawback was they forgot to celebrate our 50th anniversary despite reminders & being given a date.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
This was a big band cruise and the music was terrific and all times of day & evening... especially fun were the professional dancers who gave lessons and were just fun to watch. We wanted to do dome of the awesome daytime activities on board but were too busy with the included excursions
