This was our first cruise and we were extremely pleased.  Our cabin stewards were great we rarely saw them and service was always great.  

The food and service were good up until the last day or two.  Service in the vista restaurant began to slow down notably in serving drinks and coffee deserts were served before coffee and glasses were not refilled as fast.  This was true at each meal time over the last two days.

The other thing that was frustrating was the high cost of Wi-Fi Connection.

We enjoyed the entertainment and we enjoyed the scenery.

The Captain did an excellent job of keeping us informed of where viewing for wildlife would be and enough fore warning to get to a viewing point.

Overall we had an excellent trip.
