Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Some items are prepared bland, of course you can't meet everyones spicy palet; however everything was always presented as a work of editable art. Bring your own bottle of Chahula sauce :-)

fabulous, you got'a see it all, don't miss the shows just because you're tired, get your bum out of the room and see the shows

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
other than some language barriers, the staff were always helpful and courtious

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Small and personal, yet big and full of much to do

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Anything other than a veranda room and you'll feel very shorted, our group had mixes of both, varanda and inside stateroom. Stay away from the inside staterooms, spend the extra for the varanda!

Pros: No-one knew who I was I was soo relaxed!
