Strongly recommended for first-time cruisers.  Eight night cruise visiting four ports.  One port requires tendering (must take small ship's boat to shore).  Great shows, excellent food, smaller ship with less than 2000 passengers.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Well-kept, clean cabin with queen bed. European shower is small, toilet works on suction system that requires lid be closed before flushing.

Ship Tip

Windjammer Cafe is a buffet-style facility, located forward on Deck 9, open all three meals. If you want to control you caloric intake, choose the Great Gatsby (main dining salon) on decks 4 and 5. We chose flexible "My Time" dinner dining on deck 5 that requires daily reservations once onboard.
