Review summary

The choice of ports was very good; the food was outstanding and the service was excellent; having made a lot of cruises, we have to say, that this was one of the best. Unfortunately they had to cancel two ports, which were the most important for me. They claimed it was because of the weather, which we have no influence in. The excursions were totally overpriced; we took it on ourselves, to get a private guide and a taxi, which was still much more reasonable than the ship's prices in a bus.

no entertainment to speak of; the lecturer was a disaster; totally no concept, dull subjects and a dull presentation; where did they get this guy from? The entertainment director was the highlight, so was the guitar player, but that's it;
