First cruise in 20 years left us wanting more.  So, we decided we are going to repeat this same cruise again with different activities.  Would have preferred longer times in port to allow for more than one excursion.

Our cabin attendent Johnny, 10 forward, port side, was excellent and always greeted us with a smile.

The food was ok to very good, depending on when and where you ate.  Never tried the Fish and Chips because they were only open when we were ashore.

The Activities Director was tireless.  I don't think he slept the entire cruise.  The activities were almost non-stop.  Great shows, comedy, music and much more than we could possibly partake.
