This new ship was a joy to sail on & extremely clean. The music related artwork throughout the ship was a show in itself.

Took the train up & down the mountain. Great views & picture taking opportunties. The ship seems to dock right in town & the train station is about 100 yards away. Great meal & beer at the local microbrewery.
