Review summary

I would not go on this line the rooms were too hot and no comfort for what we were paying , no views with shades closed to try and cool off room , even the dining room was hot ,so hot dinner was uncomfortable and you sat there and sweated ,dinner was very small portions and food average . Buffet lunch was better and beer and wines were good . Enjoyed the ports ,take another line like Viking where you are comfortable in your room !

was so hot we could not get any comfort after a day of tours , complained daily was told we had to keep shades closed at all times , so why did we pay extra for a room with a view ?
