wonderful ports, but not your traditional cruise

The ports that this ship goes to are great. Lots of outdoor activities to take part in (hiking, walking, kayaking, etc.) as well as area tours.

This is not your typical cruise with a set dinner time and set show times. Each night is different and based on when you book them. You are required to register for all the "bigger shows" as well as all dinner reservations, otherwise you wait standby. For those who like having the same waitstaff throughout their cruise, you will not get this with this cruise. Each night you will have different waitstaff. 

There are a good number of on board activities to do - iFly, rock climbing wall, bumper cars, etc. We felt there wasn't a lot of planned activities outside of these during the day (with the exception of a lot of trivia).

Overall it was a very nice cruise, nice staff, great ports, but different from your typical cruise experience.
