A bit uneven. Some musical events were so loud, I left. Loved the daily string quartet with performers from Eastern Europe!

No children.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Well trained server staff, excellent and knowledgable waiters and sommeliers. Our butler, Titus, from India, really enhanced our experience. He is worth his weight in gold.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Clean but showing some sign of wear and tear. All in all, we loved the layout and would not dream of goingmon a lRger shop.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We loved the large size and larger balcony. Well maintained daily by very nice staff.

Ship tip

Choose a premium cabin.
