Review summary

The staff and crew in all departments were awesome! The entertainment was excellent! The ship was very clean, in great repair (except for 1 public toilet which did not flush) and the decor was elegant & classic.

However, the main problem was the food which was average. In addition to that, the lines at the buffet (especially for breakfast) were super long because there were not enough stations.

The food in the dining room was better but still not what is being promoted and what we expected. Also, the portions were super small.

Last but not least, the ship was the smaller, old fashioned design and it seemed to have no stabilizers.
