Review summary

Especially excellent service and entertainment. I very much appreciated the high levels of attentiveness, professionalism, politeness, and friendliness of the food service staff. I befriended a few, and the ones that I was served by frequently were Jasmine, Iuliana, Anak, Ika, Numfon, and Abelardo. They remembered my face and name throughout the whole cruise, and I enjoyed having conversations with them. It really touched my heart to see that they remembered me and were interested in conversing with me. Furthermore, the stewards exhibited these high levels; I appreciated how they always greeted me as I passed by, and how my steward, Adi, remembered my name and room number. I also loved the towel animals on my bed each day, and the level of cleanliness to which they kept my cabin. I also liked all the activities that the cruise offered. They were fun, engaging, and creative. I particularly enjoyed the dancing/singing shows, and the towel-folding demonstration. I highly recommend this cruise line. Besides the beautiful ports and attractions, the cruise service was phenomenal.
