Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
MDR was pretty good, but many workers were sick, coughing and sneezing. The buffet was sorry with cold not so tasty fare. Pastries were hard and cold in the cafe.

Onboard Activities

Didn't offer enough activities for my taste. Too cold for the pool.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The room was well maintained, but we had reactions to something in the beds. We sneezed and coughed at night. We had to cover our pillows with towels. Between that and the sick servers we all went home sick.

Ship tip

It is a beautiful low key ship. There is plenty of room to spread out and lounge around. You can truly relax.
