Everything was great on this cruise.  The Service onboard, the different activities for the kids, the entertainment venues was all above what I expected.  The only negative issue was a disappointing experience with a ship recommended shore excursion.  Upon return when discussing it at the pursers desk we were basically told oh well it happens.  I found that quite unacceptable for something we had just paid over $300 for.  That is the only negative comment I can give.  When we do it again I am not sure I would book through the ship for the excursions because of their indifference to our complaints.  With the exception of the excursion, this was a great value for a vacation for 6 people.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Trisna was our head waiter and was fabulous. Our youngest daughter is very shy and by the 3rd day she had her ordering for herself and even out on the dance floor dancing with her and the other wait staff. Hilda was our stateroom steward and kept our stateroom immaculate. it was like she waited for us to leave to go in and tidy up.

Ship Tip

go to the fore of the ship on 7 deck 15 minutes before sunset or before sunrise for one of the most beautiful site in Gods creation.
