Review summary

This is not a cruise I would do again. We had a lot of bad weather and it was extremely cold. The ship is adequate but the staff are amazing. They work so hard.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food is just average in the buffet dining room. The specialty restaurants are excellent

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
We used the fitness centre and could be better staffed to assist persons who have not used the equipment before and do not understand the hygiene of wiping equipment after use. The staff stand outside trying to sell you extras.

The nightly shows are very poor. The music in the atrium and the Windjammer was excellent
