This is a smaller cruise ship so don't expect the usual experience that comes with being on one of the larger ships. Overall, the staff was great - very friendly and courteous at all times.
The drawback for this cruise was the entertainment and food. For the most part, there was limited entertainment after dinner. Instead of having multiple events at the same time so that one could choose based upon interest, we found ourselves going to one show after the other just to keep our selves occupied. Not that we were interested in what we were seeing but needed something to occupy our time.
The food was okay. Breakfast was basically the same options every day. Lunch wasn't bad. The BBQ was the best food offered for the entire cruise. At dining, the wait staff was exceptional. They kept us more entertained where we almost did not want to leave. Dining food was not the best. I ate at a specialty restaurant the last day and regret not trying the other restaurants on other nights.
Overall, the ports of call make up for the drawbacks from the ship.
