I found the ship clean, the crew smart and on-top of everything. The food was just ok. The onboard activities were just ok. Although, there was overall enough going on to be engaged in.

As usual, the nickeling-and-diming for every little thing on the boat was annoying. But all of travel seems to have gone this way. Charging 20$ for each photo is really obscene, especially now that it is all electronic. The price of internet on the boat at $.55 a min is robbery. Also, cappuccino on board is no longer free. Instead it is a bar drink and NOT included with any of the drink packages. And there is more and more and more.

The island itinerary is one of my favs. The long time on each of the islands gave you plenty of time to explore or relax, whatever you chose. I did enjoy the trip very much.

Trivia at the schooner bar is a blast. The bar there one of the best!
