Review summary

First time. Small ship but new refurbishment. Service is superb. Cabins small. Casual vibe focussed on relaxing. Best sun loungers at sea. Great dining variety. Drinks packages a mess. Entertainment good but old fashioned. Nice ports of call especially punte del edge and buzios with an upmarket vibe and safer feel.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Few people and loads of staff made it super easy

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Best mdr breakfast at sea. Very good room service. Loads of variety. Specialty restaurants were high standard. Drink quality was variable, often used cheap spirits rather than what was advertised. Lot of premium brands not stocked.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Trivia, trivia trivia. Loads of it. Art classes were great. Table tennis location and shuffleboard impractical. Little more variety needed

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Some amazing guest performers. Amanda the acd was superb. Too much old fashioned music. Comedian was racist.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Superb staff, very friendly and eager to help. Best aspect of Aramark

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Small ship, nice design, could feel crowded at times. Access often meant walking outside on higher levels. Corridors often blocked.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
No couch. Tiny shower with curtain. Fabulous bed. Shocking tv. Great attendant.
