Review summary

This was the best vacation we ever taken. First time in Eastern coast of South America. We saw a lot of different cultures and architects. Latin life style food and entertainment. The cruise was very nice (thanks to weather) and relaxing. Going to do it again, but this time from western coast. I recommend this trip to all.

Everything was so good. I had to go for seconds all the time. Breakfast and lunch in main buffet verities are endless possibilities. Dinner at main dining room and specialty restaurants exquisite! I especially was unpressed with hand washing and sanitizing deal by entrance to every eating location. WASHI-WASHI!
