Review summary

Had a wonderful time and look forward to another. If I did this cruise again I would opt to stay on board and enjoy all onboard activities. I say this only because of disabilities - using a tender to get ashore was difficult as was getting on and off buses only to find the site you chose to visit was not handicap accessible (was informed that they were).

I was informed that a wheelchair would be made available at check in. Being a newbie I pictured in my mind an airport check in process. Check in for the cruise was a very large long walk from drop off.

Service and Staff

Stewards, waiters, cleaning crew A+++. The service desk however needs a more courteous crew and perhaps hiring more then 4 people to attend 3500 guests would help alleviate the stress and never ending line.
