Review summary

We wanted all 5 of us to go, but could only get a room for four. The ship is quite large, and there was lots to do. We found the additional amenities to be quite expensive, especially the photos. The food was good and, of course, plentiful. Naturally, it was difficult to find seats by the pool, and the late night dancing was definitely for younger, more fit cruisers. I think I like a more traditional cruise with dining times, free shows nightly, and more formal attire on a couple of evenings. All in all it was an enjoyable experience.

Everything was wonderful. We felt special at all the mains and specialties we visited. Big thanks go to Emilia Baldovino, Aliea Puey, and Alma Clarito, also, Rowen Condicion, Zara Santueces, and Joyce Tan. Oh, and Geraldo Castillo too!!!!!

Onboard Activities

We enjoyed the 'always crowded' pools and jacuzzis. The 'Grotto' was good fun too.

We loved Choir of Man, but some shows you had to pay extra for. Another show was OK, but 2/3 of the audience left early.

I must admit the crew was the best part of the ship. Everyone desrves credit, but the 'Illonga beauties' were so very special, Making my wife's birthday a memorable one. I have already mentioned them in this review. Our attendant, Gilbert, was great.
