A unique experience

Sail Date: November 06, 2011

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship & crew were very good. The length of time in the ports was more than adequate for excursions & sightseeing. The cost of the cruise was favourable.

We have been on 12 cruises however & have never experienced after paying the gratuities up front before sailing the additional 15% on every non included purchases (bar, spa). In addition the continual less than suttle request for "additional tip" on top of the 15% included in the bill.

Pros: The ship & ports visited

Cons: The extra gratuities
