New port every day, but enough time in each port to explore that city. Ship seems a little old, and could use some touchups.  Food and entertainment was mediocre but the service everywhere is excellent.

Clean and service was excellent, but cabin is looking a little shabby, scuffs in paint, crack is shower door, 2 doors had to be rehung, one closet one cabinet. Did not get towel animals everyday and they were missed.

Ship tip

Avoid booking a room near the centrum as the noise is extreme at night.
