Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
MDR service was excellent! Our waiter Paritosh and waitress Valeriia were exceptional! The food was nothing to write home about but still good cuisine. Windjammer service was also excellent every morning. Food was okay. Always fresh fruit every morning and the breads were delicious The Coastal Kitchen was exceptional, staff and food was amazing!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
There were many activities every day if you were so inclined to partake. Spent most of our time in the schooner lounge or the promenade lounge. Just enjoining doing nothing!

Service and Staff

All the staff we encountered were very pleasant and friendly all the time. Willing to go the extra mile for us at anytime.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very clean. Our stateroom attendant kept our cabin clean and tidy. We asked for a bucket of ice on our first day on board, and every day after that our bucket was filled with ice without us having to ask . Something we appreciated as we liked to have cold drinks during the day and at night.

Cabin / Stateroom

Clean, couch was hard and uncomfortable. The bed was both comfortable and uncomfortable. The bathrooms were nice and clean. And the balcony had Comfortable chairs with ottomans which were very relaxing

Ship tip

If you don’t or can’t walk long distances , this is not the ship for you. It’s long distances to get from one activity to another. On the other hand, the long walks is excellent exercise and you will definitely get it every day on this ship.
