Review summary

The cruise was great, the tours while a little pricey were ok. Each tour was run by local tour subcontractors, some were excellent, and others were so-so.

The food started to become monotonous towards the last three days, and some of the main dishes were inedible to me, (Maybe I have bad taste?), and went down to the buffet to eat. The big problem was a monotonous menu.

You would think when traveling to a countries   port, they would have picked up on the obvious to serve a few local dishes from the country visiting.

However, I would give 5 stars to the crew, and staff. They were amazing.
