Review summary

My absolute favorite part of the cruise was the three massages I had by Lisa in the spa. When the dining room steward arranged for Panama rolls to be delivered to our room (twice!) I was in love. 

When the carpet was replaced in our hallway during the night, we got little sleep. The fuel fumes in the back of the boat were also nauseating.

Back of the boat & lower was helpful when on rough seas but awful when refueling.

Ship tip

Because it is a smaller ship, there are only elevators in the front and back of the ship, none midship. Keep this in mind if walking is an issue.
