Nice experience, diverted to Ohio River due to high water levels and dock flooding.

Lots of new people. All had good attitudes and tried hard to please, but were understandably slower and missed some details.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabin was small for a veranda. No night stand or shelf on second side of the bed for an alarm clock. Shower size was very good. Adequate storage, but not easy to use.

Ship tip

Make sure to tour the engine room and pilot house.
