Review summary

A lovely autumn cruise with generally good weather, interesting ports and good food. A nice mixed group of fellow passengers who weren’t as old as expected. Highly recommended for culture and food lovers of all ages.

Very quick and efficient - we were on board by 12.20.

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Much better food that normal and very efficient service. The only reason it’s not 5 star is the drinks prices. They are way over the top compared with other lines. An all inclusive rate of $69 per person, per day is beyond ridiculous.

Quick but all the Grills get off at the same time so a little crowded.
