Review summary

This was a very good cruise with excellent ports of call, terrific staff and delicious meals.  Expensive meats like prime rib, lamb and lobster was on the menu.  The ship is great with lots of activities and lots of quiet places if you just want to curl up with a book.

 The only thing that soured me was that they allow smoking in the casino, and the place stinks of smoke.  As a result I did not spend any time at the casino.

Ship tip

If you like to converse with people from all over the world, choose a large table in the dining room. If you like to be alone, choose a table for two.
