Very nice cruise to the warm countries (from the cold). THe ship was decorated beautifully for the holidays and was exquisite! The ports were warm and friendly, and for the most part the tours were the same. We enjoyed seeing many lovely birds, tropical flowers and rain forest animals at many of the port stops. The food on board was exceptionally nice as they had some excellent cooks who know how to make the best sauces we have tasted - - a different one each day! Lots of fresh fruit and veges of all kinds too. The on board staff were all very pleasant and cheerful, and we really enjoyed one of their new musical and dance productions "On the Bayou" - - the best we have ever experienced! Great tour, and a great line to travel with! The Atrium musicians were also very talented and pleasant to listen to.

The Horizon Court has everything you could want to eat and great staff to wait on you as well! 24/7 food available is a plus. The bars. lounges play music for everyone. We listened to oldies, but the young set rocked out on the top deck. Nice to have all available.
