Review summary

The staff on this cruise was top notch as was the food. Sadly some of the passengers (a large amount) were rude to staff and other guests. Sad to see.

Ship Quality

Ships layout did not have an easy flow (in my opinion). It was one of the cleanliness ships we have been on in recent memory.

Cabin / Stateroom
