Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining was excellent. The buffet was small but sufficient. Seating was sometimes difficult in the buffet area.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We enjoyed many of them.


5 out of 5
The shows were excellent. The seating was not so good. 660 seats twice a night doesn't work for 2,000 passengers. One had to go an hour early to get a seat.

Children's Programs

No children on board.
