Review Summary

Excellent ship, ports, and service.We had a mini-suite and really enjoyed the design of the limited space. The bathrooms felt uncrowded and comfortable. Our balconey was private and attractively furnished.The ship was full and the decks were a little congested on the days at sea,so the balcony was nice to have some quiet space alone.Our waitstaff was pleasant and very efficient.The food was a mixed bag. The garden cafe (buffet) was very inconsistent in quality. You really had to work hard to find anything good on some days. The regular "menu" restaurants were better quality however the portions were vey small! It was a frequently heard complaint among fellow travelers. Some waitstaff would allow you to order 2 items, which helped. The pay restaurants served slightly larger portions.I can't imagine how hard it is to feed all those people everyday !
