A fantastic Cruise

Sail Date: October 17, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

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

Pros: Excellent Ships Officers and Crew. Service was excellent. Great entertainment

Cons: Older Ship only one gangway which meant long lines to disembark and embark ship
