Considering basic cost of cruise, OK, But nickle and dimed on ship.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room staff excellent, but midnight buffet was only one night and that was the night of the captains dinner and before the first shore excursion.i.e. poor timing.


3 out of 5
Only one or two decent floor shows. Everything but the bars and casino shut down at 8pm.

Children's Programs

Had directed activities for the younger children. But nothing for older teenagers, Everything shut down at 8pm.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Dining room staff excellent, PPI shopping advisor excellent. Pursar and other facility staff OK, Cruise Director needs considerable improvement.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Have sailed on several other lines which were better.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Had considerable more room than previous ships we have been on.
1 out of 5
Shore excursions were poorly organized and managed. Costs of excursions did not include all incidentals. Essentially you paid your money and were on your own.
1 out of 5
Nothing to do where ship docked, had to take a taxi to town or shore excursion. Again shore excursions were poorly managed.

Pros: Cost

Cons: Excursions, Activities, Food Service, Nickle and Diming

Recommends Holiday? Yes!
