The experience was exceptional for us\, but this was a first cruise and we have nothing to compare it to. The crew were exceptional and the food was good. The extra $50-$100 for wine at dinner each night was a surprise. It would have been interesting to have an opportunity to speak with the ship's officers. The \"relaxed\" dress code also allowed people in jeans into the Queens Grill\, also a surprise.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5


3 out of 5
Dances\, Balls\, etc. all take place rather late for some of us\, not starting until approximately 10PM. Lectures were throughout the day\, but the only activities I noticed were a pool and shuffleboard.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The crew were perfect.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Every area of the was well maintained and interestingly decorated. The size of the ship is a bit overwhelming\, but everything is well marked.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Everything was lovely\, spacious\, bright and well cared for.

Pros: Relaxed atmposphere
