Great ship for first time cruisers or a short get away...
The ship is older but in good shape and clean. The staff /crew is very nice and works hard. The ship is small unlike some other ships where you can get lost trying to find the many restaurants, lounges and bars. The food in the main dining room at night was excellent. We were very happy with the selections offered and how well everything was prepared. The rest of the food was average but good. The pastries were fresh and very good, there was a big selection of choices for mealtimes in the Windjammer. We really enjoyed the Park Cafe which is in the Solarium. The sandwiches were nice with many choices as well as having fresh fruit and salads. This is NOT a ship to choose if you want to spend time in the spa-there isn't one! They offer spa services (facials, massages, etc,,)but do not offer a spa setting with steam rooms, sauna, therapy pools, etc which have been wonderful on other ships and was the main reason we chose to take a cruise this time. That was what we wanted to do and even though we did our research, we were disappointed to find none of these items were on this ship. But if you are not looking for this-everything else was good.

Cabin / Stateroom
We spent all our time in the Solarium. Since we were not traveling with children it was nice to be able to go in there to relax and read. They do enforce the no children rule-I noticed the staff nicely informing parents at different times that their kids needed to leave, unless it is raining.
