Review summary

This cruise tops the rest of the cruises that i have been on. The staff, the ship, excursions, entertainment, all was absolutely an experience i will never forget. My cabin steward greeted me by name as well as our waiter. Made us feel like family. Can’t wait for our next adventure.

The candy shop was my favorite. The girl that ran this i give her 10 stars. She was funny and engaged in conversation. She was great. Don’t know her name but she is a 10 and she needs to know that. I told her my aunt was Imelda Marcos, lol, she isn’t, but i am from the Philippines as well.
