Review summary

With so many ports of call you just get a taste of each location. Unless you book tours all you get is a shopping experience. It was a good escape from winter in New England.   We had not done a cruise in several years and found cruise line had cut back on food and service. Internet very expensive onboard. 

Passengers were almost all elderly and many had disabilities. We met some nice people at our assigned dinner table. Good entertainment each evening.
