Review summary

This is the fourth time we have done a cruise over the Thanksgiving holiday with our son and his family. As always, we had a very relaxing, fun time. The food and service overall was very good. There are many things to do on the ship. The ports of call were also good. We did not participate in an excursions, because we have done some of them in the past. We cruise mainly for shopping and relaxation.

Service and Staff

The evening meal waiters and assistants were very good. The breakfast waiters were not so good, very impersonal and very slow! Our cabin attendant was very good. The room was always immaculate after he finished his work.
