Quite a great first cruise experience! The weather was fantastic, hardly a spitting of rain. We were amazed by the amount of detail and attention paid to keeping our state room clean and tidy, with the bed being made every time we came back to it. The bathroom and middle area were the same was as well. So great! The food! Our dining experience was amazing as well, with great quality food being cooked expertly. That experience was made all the better by our Head Server, Ivo Vas. He was very professional, and took his work very seriously. At the same time, he was so good humored and truly enjoys being around people. We looked forward to dining each night (and sometimes breakfast too!) because of Ivo. Truly remarkable experience!

Our Room #2013 was amazing! The Deck #2 that we were on though smelled like sewage. Musty, dank and weird. That issue needs to be addressed!

History and music was amazing! Many spots not at all family friendly though. Bummer.
