Review SummaryThe overall experience for a first time cruiser was very good. I didn't have much time to ask questions prior to the day of the cruise so was greatful to have friends who are very experienced cruisers there to show me the ropes!
The ship was very well maintained, pleasant crew and great food...too much food! Only wish that I had taken a cruise which allowed more time at sea so that I could have taken advantage of more of the on-board ship activities. It's difficult to go ashore and then try to get back to enjoy lunch and then have enough time before dinner. I guess you really feel obligated to eat aboard when you know it's all included. I'll try this again for sure but want a longer voyage!
