Review summary

After reading past reviews we were somewhat skeptical but the cruise was wonderful. The people were great and so friendly. Shows were very good, Ship was very clean. Would go on this ship again at any time. Love the smaller ships with limited passengers. The passengers on our cruise were friendly and met many new friends and had a great time. I would have liked to have seen more products such as t-shirts and sweat shirts for sale with a greater selection.
