Review summary

This was a last minute cruise for us and we were not disappointed! We had a fabulous cabin. I had them decorate it for my friend because this was the first time that she had done anything for just herself. They did a great job. She felt very special. The crew were terrific. The food in our dining room was outstanding. Our wait staff were outstanding. The ship was one of the smaller ships and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You could wander the ship and at the end of the day you weren't exhausted and frustrated because you couldn't find the place where you really wanted to go. I usually book way in advance but this short notice was terrific. Pack and go.
