I found this to be an Educational & Culturally Entertaining Cruise.

I especially enjoyed the Excursions, Comfy Beds & Information provided. Our Steward was phenominal! Just like a wizard! The Extra Cleanliness to prevent Staph Infections/Flu Germs...was much appreciated. The violinists were fabulous!

On the other hand, the Food wasn't as good as other cruises.
Also-a Repairman appeared on our balcony with no warning (peeking in window while we were undressed!!). I called the supervisor only to have him tell me that "We need to keep ship beautified". Did you ever hear of the courtesy of letting us know ahead of time?
The Spa lacked organization (calling us back 6 hours later...) and was ridiculously expensive. A normal shave & a haircut for my son (13) was $52 + tip!!! Lastly, a few snippy customer service reps were uncalled for, but the majority of the service people were a joy!

Overall, we found this cruise too be very relaxing & enjoyable with beautiful surroundings in the middle of nowhere!
Thanks!
