We had a great trip. .

Meals were well prepared and varied. We enjoyed both the specialty restaurants as well as the buffets. The steak restaurant was a bit of a dissapointment but the French restaurant was a jewel.

Excursions were quite expensive but added significantly to our enjoyment of the trip. Get out there early though otherwise you may stand in line for a while!

Overall, a great trip. We have already booked our next one!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Choose your specialty restaurants carefully. There are excellent choices but some disapointments too.


3 out of 5
Shows were entertaining. Too much emphasis on bingo though.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Kid's Club worked beautifully for our twelve year old. She was active and involved in something different each day. The activites were age appropriate and the staff worked really hard to engage the kids on a personal level.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The house staff was very attentive. Our steward went out of her way to make us comfortable. She learned quickly that we need extra towels and we never had to ask twice for anything.

Deck beverage service was sketchy and expensive. I was annoyed by the automatic gratuity added to their bill, particularly as they were the least impressive part of an otherwise excellent service staff.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

Small but clean and well maintained.

Pros: Staff, Kid's Club, meals

Cons: small cabin.
