Room Type: Inside

The ship decor is tasteful, warm, plenty of curved lines, warm wood, admin areas that look more like small hotel lobby and welcoming.  For the value this was a great cruise.  However, shipboard activities offered were boring and mostly in sales ode such as services of spa, jewelery offerings.  Although seemingly design for mature crowed, we seniors like continuing learning opportunities and educational lectures were lacking. For a short cruise that's great but for ten days it was boring. Food was good and similar in quality to other cruise lines I've taken.  It seemed the cabin and dining attendants were allocated more than their manageable share of workload. There were not a lot of noticeable happy faces and many seemed tired and sad. 



Cabin / Stateroom had minor plumbing problems such as slow draining shower, non working sink stopper, shower curtain kept coming off, hard to adjust for hot water. This was also the sallest interior stateroom I've ever had. We asked for twin beds but it was not done and had to be re-configured.

The interior were beautiful especially design of dining fixtures, lighting fixtures, paint colors, wood finishes. The interior state too was unremarkable and TV quite small.
