Review summary

Great ship, superior restaurants, fabulous ports of call and amazing staff. Wireless usage was a challenge and did not always work.  Flight schedules did not leave enough room for delays. Although flights may be on time, deplaning, reaching  connecting flights in different terminals and getting through customs that are minimally staffed creates tremendous stress when time in between flights is too close. 30-45 minutes is not sufficient. Finally, travel representative Trisha Kirkbride was exceptional, always answered calls and questions promptly and thoroughly. Would definitely book future cruises through Trisha.

Ship tip

Would recommend adding days to beginning and end of trip for less hectic travel to meet flight and cruise schedules. Ship, staff and ports were fabulous. Onboard ship credit comes with limitations. Wireless accessibility not the best. Concierge not always helpful. Veranda room a must.
