Review summary

Daily shore excursions were a plus. Tours offered were good very good with tour guides very knowlegeable and very informative, good value for price.Ship evening entertainment was very good.However there was a complete lack of information about the ports in relation to the cities visited,..unless you booked a tour you were completely blind about where to go, what to look for, etc.

cabin was good but towels were very worn and no wash cloths were provided.

Food aboard ship was very pedestrian versus other cruises we have taken. Everythting was extra cost,; coffee, soft drinks except at breakfast.Food quality was not what was expected.

....seems equivalent to Carnival low cost cruises, lacks a bit of class.
