It is a smaller older ship so not an over abundance of things to do but what they did have we enjoyed. Really good fitness center. Nice theater. Decent pool in the solarium.

We only went to 3 of the shows. The other ones did not interest us but the 3 we did see were very good.

Service and Staff

All very friendly and helpful. Our waiters Santhosh and Oliver were excellent. Always helpful with my gluten allergy. Brought me the menu for the following night so l could pre order my food. Most items on the menu I could get made gluten free. Always had gluten free bread waiting for me at the table.
