Review summary

The first 2 days were Sea Days and then when we finally stopped in port it was for 5 hours and then off again. The excursions were short. We did as much as we felt we could but you certainly aren't going to learn much about each port.

The evening dining, in Anytime Dining, was a very long line (35-45 minutes) because there was nothing else to do. I'd suggest assigned dining so you have a time to be there and a chance of getting in. We tried to make reservation, as we have on other cruise lines, and that was not an option.

The shows were very entertaining. We didn't find "other" activities such as watercolor painting or lectures that we've experienced on other cruise. 

Getting on board and off in Ft.

were very simple and a pleasure.
