The ship is beautiful. The dcor is very luxurious. The restaurants are excellent though the lido is limited compared to other cruise lines. The activities are geared to the mostly British travelers that dominate the passenger list. The activities are a bit sedate for my preference but appear appropriate for the majority of the cruisers that take cruises on this ship. Not much for younger children to do though there areas for teens and pre-teens. The shows and entertainment is aimed toward an older audience. On my cruise most of the travelers were over sixty-five.

Lido options are very limited. Alternate dining is varied and a nice change from the main restaurant.

Very good but geared totally to an older audience.

Children's Programs

Extremely limited activities for younger travelers. There is one area for older teens and one for pre-teens but not a lot to do. This is a cruise line typical chosen by senior travelers. We were young at 65.

Service and Staff
