Overall, the cruise was alright. Not horrible but definitely not amazing. You definitely get what you pay for in the sense that there is very little activity to do on the boat. Starting with activities, they were kind of lame and didn't really have a variety of things. Food was good.. after the first day and then it was just the same thing everyday onwards. Also the special dinner dining room experience was just the same as the buffet but in a fancier set-up so no specialness there. Next time, will probably opt to pay a bit more for a better cruse. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Great space overall because there was only 2 of us. The beds however (two twins put together into a king) was a bit uncomfortable but do-able. However, the service for our room was outstanding!

it was raining so there was literally nothing around/to do ):


The food in the fancy restaurants for dinner have some of the same selections as the Brasserie (Lido Deck Buffet) and it comes in tiny portions, might as well just get all you can eat at the Brasserie!
