Review SummaryThe ship was meticuously clean. And the wait staff and cabin stewards were excellent. But we were disappointed in the food. Breakfast on deck 11 was excellent and the chef absolutely amazing. Some of the entertainment was outstanding and some was so-so. The daily announcements were available in 5 languages as we had many people from different countries onboard. The ports were excellent choices. We enjoyed being able to get off the ship on almost a daily basis because of the constant rocking of the ship. We doubted whether the ship had stablizers. If it did, they not used because the seas were not rough but ship constantly rocked. This is our third cruise and I do not remember ever having the motion that he had on this ship. Our friends did not feel well the entire time because of the constant motion. One of the greatest assets for us was the fact that a priest was onboard and offered daily Mass. This we enjoyed!! We did not sign up for excurisons on the ship but had no problem arranging the tours ourselves in each port at a reduced cost.
So if one is looking for a spotlessly clean ship, excellent wait staff and room stewards, daily Mass, great ports and can overlook the food and comfort of the beds, this cruise is for them.
Ports of Call
Pros: The cleanliness of ship was outstanding. The cabin stewards and dining room staff.offered excellent service. Daily MASS was offered.
Cons: The food was not the best. Shrimp Cocktail and Spiny Lobster was offered once during the cruise and unfortunately the lobster was overcooked as well as the swordfish on another night. The beds were not comfortable. I brought along a Memory Foam Topper otherwise I would not have been able to sleep
