The itinerary was fantastic. Tangiers was only so-so, but I got a chance to stand on the African continent. The other stops were very nice, I never took an excursion, just wandered the towns to get a local feel.
The ship itself is a marvel, with 17 decks there was plenty to see and do. I invested in the Spa package on the 1st day and it was well worth it. Sauna, hot tubs and steam rooms with plenty of places to relax and enjoy.
The food was really good, I dined in the buffet for the most part and it was very high quality for buffet dining. The specialty restaurants were good as well, especially the Brazilian steakhouse. I did feel a bit rushed at the end of my meal as I was dining alone and people came up every 2 minutes or so to ask if I needed anything else.
The studio suites are brilliant. Lots of single travelers (mostly retired) who like to have fun.
