Review summary

We were very pleasantly surprised by our experience on this ship. Despite our laughter at some of the decorating choices made back in the nineties, the crew and the procedures on this ship are top notch.

Even though four boats were sailing that day, embarkation was swift and our bags were in the room at 11:00 AM.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Excellent offerings. You cannot serve yourself and that is a good thing -- no food borne illnesses.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Just the right amount of facilities for the number of passengers

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Ship is a grey lady. Needs to be spruced up and brought into the 21st century. TV was a joke.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
As I mentioned, in room TV was a joke. No drawers anywhere to put anything. No lighting by the closets. I had to hang a flashlight to see my clothes.

Ship tip

Despite the dated decor, I would sail with them again.
