History at its best

Sail Date: November 05, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is very large and accomodates so many passengers you lose the intimate feel and special attention you find on smaller ships. It is lavishly decorated and was fun to explore. The crew are very helpful and friendly. It is a great place to brush up on languages as five are spoken on board.

Pros: Fantastic ports where you can explore ancient and modern cultures

Cons: The ship may actually be too large which gives a less relaxed atmosphere
