great cruise - loved the staff and the ports. we were a bit tired from all the excursions, but how could one ignore those ports of a lifetime!
we had a slight problem with lounge chairs on the days at sea and wish that more could be provided, although i got help from a supervisor when chairs were abandoned more than 45 min.
we also had a slight problem - on two occasions - with the air in our cabin. there was an odor similar to paint - and we complained to guest services who claimed nothing was going on. my husband is knowledgable in this field and he thought that there was painting going on near a vent.
Ship Quality
for an older ship, we thought it was well maintained.
Food and Dining
very good, especially the desserts
Cabin / Stateroom
we sailed on the "miracle" in november and were told that the ocean suite was identical to the jr. suite - it was smaller.
Service and Staff
courteous, helpful, friendlyu
would like to see more musical shows
Children's Programs n/a
Onboard Activities

eat less at dinner as the desserts are fabulous.
