Review summary

This was my bucketlist cruise and met all my expectations and more. It was an older crowd and people were really nice. I was a solo traveler and people really were nice about including me and inviting me to do things with them. Not alot of entertainment but what they did have was great. It was my most relaxing cruise thus far. If I had any complaints it would be that the buffet was the same everyday but food was good. And disembarkation for ports were extremely unorganized.
