Review summary

We loved the size o fthe ship as well as passenger ratio- we never felt crowded evrything was easy to reach and close by. Our stateroom was large enough and cofortable- The staff however was superb. All were very friendly and most of them took the trouble to remember our names!! My favorite of all was the dining room staff- especially Benban' I enjoyed the cruise so much that I dreamt about it for ocer a week after getting home!!! We have cruised often, but this was definately our best cruise ever- even tough we were familiar with all the ports. Thank you HAL for aa great ship and great crew!!

The museum on the Island and the river area is my favourite my favourite restaurant closed several years ago
Don't Miss: see above

Topolobampo, Mexico

5 out of 5
Hadn't been there in 25 years - not much changed except for a small motel and the new Palacio Municipal. The tourist dollars should help this area grow and create more jobs- very important for a place like Topolabampo
Don't Miss: The side trips and the free shuttle to Los Mochis was a plus. I especially enjoyed and bought some of the Indian art and costumes- Very original and hard to find!!

Pros: Ship itself

Cons: n/a

Recommends Ryndam? Yes!
