Review summary

This cruise was beyond awesome. All of the ports were charming, but the cruising in Antarctica was definitely the best part of the cruise. We had seen many pictures of Antarctica, but it is impossible to capture the scenery experience we had in a picture. It is 200% better in person!

We did not participate in many activities although there were many available. We like to read while cruising, and enjoyed the huge library onboard the ship.

Entertainment

We attend many performances at home, and like to just relax and read while cruising.

Children's Programs

We did not travel with children.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We really like the layout on this ship. We have sailed on it before and chose to sail on it again both because we liked the itinerary and the ship itself.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were pleased with our suite in every way except that it was an accessible cabin which we did not need but accepted because it was the only suite available for both legs of our back to back cruise.

Ship tip

The Suite Life is well worth the price for all the extra aminites and personal touch.
