Review summary

It was the most enjoyable travel home from vacation that my wife and I had ever experienced. The voyage could have been a vacation all of its own. The ship's staff and crew make everyone feel as if they were royalty. Yet, talking one on one with any crew or staff member would be as casual and friendly as talking with one's neighbor back home.

Heaven, particularly compared to the tormenting process of boarding an air liner for international travel.

Excellent layout of public areas for dining, lounging, or playing parlor games, all with a view of the sea.

Cabin / Stateroom

Our cabin attendant, Mathew, was exceptional at keeping our cabin clean and refreshed throughout the day.

Ship tip

Explore the entire ship on the first day or two so you won’t miss any of the amenities, such as viewing the officers operations in the bridge, the indoor pool and whirlpool, the observation deck, exercise center, etc.
