Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Health and safety were job 1. All areas on ship where clean and well maintained. Only downside was not enough deck chairs when at sea.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nice layout. Good size bathroom. Plenty of closet and storage space. Enjoyed the veranda. Only bottleneck was location of closet along side of bed but not sure if any other location would be possible. Also, bath and hand towels too rough to the touch.

Ship tip

Make sure you get a veranda stateroom and be prepared to be spoiled by the entire crew.

Took too long but no fault of the ships crew. Eight ships arriving put strain on customs staff.
