love the shows but why same program for the next sector.? should not be the same as we have already enjoyed the 1st 14 days and seeing a repeat is no longer exciting

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
yes, but only the windows are very dirty, cabin and buffet restaurant. i was disappointed when couldn’t take photos of glaciers as all photos came out streaky.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
happy with above, except with noise from the staff opening the metal gates in open deck area below our cabin at 5 am in the morning. the clanking wakes me up when i still want to slee. i complained 2 days before disembark, should have earlier and it was dealt with.

Ship tip

if something is wrong, bring up to service desk immediately. participate in activities as much as possible, otherwise it’s quite dull.
