Overall the cruise and excursions were great.  There were two exceptions to that.  Getting a drink or glass of wine at dinner was next to impossible.  the first time we were even asked was on the 5th night of the cruise.  The second problem was my room.  It was a mini suite which on first impression was nice.  The problem was it  was right below a prep area in the kitchen where they draged laundy carts back and forth all night long.  I came home exausted from lack of sleep.  The ship gave me a $100 credit on my bill due to the noise.  Be careful what is above your room.

Very good.

Went zip lining and had great fun. Too short of a stop as the city was beautiful and we did not have time to enjoy it.


Check you are not near the upper decks in your room choice. Noise from staff is a problem.
