The trip was excellent

Sail Date: June 25, 2014

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The land portion of the journey was excellent and was organized very well. The cruise was excellent as well except certain meals were not as good as in the past. Service was excellent. If an individual takes a land package, I would recommend going north to south and doing land first since it is very tiring and you can then relax on the first few sea days.
