Captain karin first female Captain of large cruise ship. She ran a tight ship with full participation of ships officers at cocktail parties ships events. Crew provided excellent service throughout 16 days. Entertainment was also better than expected, very high standard and cruise director JohnnyO lead his team from the front. Older ship, but personal service from crew made up for shortcomings
