Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was very relaxing, which is what we were looking for, and the service was exceptional.  However, we normally like to be much more active on our vacations (even cruises) and we were not overly impressed by the onboard activities and entertainment, or the knowledge of the staff regarding shore excursions.  While on previous cruises with other lines we never found a shortage of activities we were interested in (everything from the shows, to art auctions, to piano bars), and would have to skip activiites in order to participate in others that were even more appealing) that was not the case on this ship.  We gave up on the evening shows after walking out on one because we found it to be so bad, finding one decent but not great, and only truly enjoying one. 


But if you are just lookin gfor a relaxing vacation and chance to "get away from it all" this could be the perfet cruise for you

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
While all of the food was perfectly acceptable, none was phenomenal (inlcudin gat Portofino). However, we did get luck on the second to last night, when the ship got extra large lobsters to serve
