Review SummaryRelaxation was the order on the day for this trip and we didn't even have to think about how we would relax, since the whole cruise provided numerous ways to leave stress ashore while having fun. The whole experience was out of this world and I plan to do it again as soon as work and other obligations permit.
Food and Dining
Would love to see more meat-free choices that contained protein without Indian spices. As in too many places, the people responsible for menus think that vegetarians need only fill their stomachs and can survive forever on pasta and tomato sauce or just vegetables, or else will eat curried whatever at every meal. Hint number one: there are numerous sources of non-animal protein in this world. Hint number two: lots of vegetarians hate curry and Indian spices.
There were cherries jubilee on the dessert menu one night, but all it was were maraschino cherries with ice cream. Not, I repeat, not, cherries jubilee. Actually, a very sad dessert.
