Ship Quality
Had trouble with elevator decor getting smashed by handicapped scooters. They changed during cruise.
Food and Dining
Really good food, staff was in hurry to please, but would take time with guests.
Cabin / Stateroom
A new ship. Comfortable.
Service and Staff
Excellent friendliness.
Their effort was great, productions were very good. We are spoiled by television and movies. However, these people were very good. Lots of magic shows.
Grand Turk Island
Giving Grand Turn an excellent, though we couldn't visit, the ship had technical problems and had to stop into Freeport, Bahamas for two days. Bottom fishing trip very good. Get seat in stern. Shopping at Port Lucaya 350 shops, many hard working entrepreneurs. We bought small things.
Malaga, Spain
Trip to Granada (travel portion) seemed shorter than brochure, very nice, and tremendous historical and botanic value.
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Village of Soller was great. Olive oil tour was really terrific, also.
Don't Miss: Vallemossa, Soller, olive oil tour.
Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands
Weather is amazing at this port. Popular with northern europeans. Caldera, "Best of Canaria" tour was very good.
