We would have preferred a smaller ship, but most similar cruises on smaller ships are prohibitively expensive. This was a great value, but not exactly our cup of tea. The decor is pretentious and, we thought, garish, except for the staterooms, which are very nice. Facilities are wonderful - complete gym, ample dining room, pools and hot tubs.
A nice introduction to sailing.
Sail Date: September 01, 2007
