Review summary

We were pleased with this cruise, as the staff on board was uniformly pleasant and efficient. The captain in particular was engaging, with the 'meet the captain' event really fun! Probably not the most stellar list of ports to call on, but there is enough there to keep things interesting. A reasonably priced cruise that I'm happy to have taken!

Mostly ate in the main dining room, with good food and service. Lunch buffet crowded, so sat happily in the m.d.r.

Onboard Activities

Excellent wine tastings, including sip and savor on sea days. Wife loved America's Test Kitchen.
