Review summary

If you are an older adult, go with the idea that there are no day time activities during the day for you. But, you can go to the Library, or walk the promande or see a film. There are other things you can do, but we just did our thing and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Fast, well prepared staff! Less than 5 minutes and then on to the bus to the ship.

Ship experiences

Buffet was lovely, Cakes for dessert! We love layer cakes! Dining room (Sunset) was wonderful, menu, presentation and Staff.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
There were no or very few activities for the older guests. I think we knew this prior to going on this cruise. Lots of fun things for the younger people.

Stage shows looked like high school performances. Perhaps not rehearsed or never worked together as a team. Individual performances like the Juggler were well done and very enjoyable.

Service and Staff

Ivan in Sunset Dining Room is a real treasure. He would tell us to try something new every night, so we did. Thank you Ivan! Room stewards had everything in hand on time.YAY! No hot water...boo. the entire week. Left note for Jamol .. We were NOT alone in the cool water showers.

Ship Quality

Would have given a 5 but the layout was a bit difficult .

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had 2 big windows! Huge! I picked the correct cabin for us. The only problem was the bathroom design. You have to step into the shower to close the bathroom door. Strange.

Ship tip

Check out the library for a quiet place to read or play cards. It seems somewhat hidden. Explore the ship, it makes getting from one place to another so much easier

Ports of call

Charleston, South Carolina

Been here many times.

King's Wharf, Bermuda

It rained, and rained....We took the little train around and visited some places along the way.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) Did not visit port

It required a transfer from ship to boat. not my thing right now.

Quick, followed instructions and the only hold up was getting onto a bus to get back to our car.
