Review summary

A great itinerary overall - would have been great to be able to get on land more. With so many sea days, there need to be more variety in food, entertainment and activities - felt repetitive after awhile. There seems to be a lack of seafood in the buffet besides fish. Most of the cooking are too similar - Indian food was great, but need more variety - Chinese, Japanese, etc.

We were told to show up at 2pm, but still have to wait for over an hour.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food is too repetitive in all the restaurants, including the Specialty, esp for a 14-night cruise.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The onboard Naturalist Celia's talks were incredible. The glass blowing studio was fun to watch. The dance lessons were fun. The gym and sauna was very enjoyable.

The production crew entertainment was great, the individual entertainers seemed dated, boring. Should have more entertainment that relates to the locales - thank goodness for the Tango Experience! That was super good, except for the singer. The production band was incredible.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very friendly and personable. Their good and jovial attitude make for an pleasant experience. Alexandro the cruise director was funny, so was Captain Leo.
