Review summary

My husband and I celebrated 40 years while on this cruise. We renewed our vows at sea and the 12 nights was very relaxing. We had a wonderful time and met nice people. We traveled with a group of 86 other folks and our group leader Kathy Craine was awesome. Nice ship and great crew. Not a bad port to sail out of in Baltimore.

Ronald our room steward was excellent always keeping our room sparkling. Joji and Cristiano at the pool bar kept our drinks flowing. Afif and Ashkay in the dining room were very friendly and attentive to all we needed.

Ship tip

It is an older and smaller ship so don’t look for the frills you would find on a larger ship
