No musicians in the only stage show we have attended. Deception. Culinary show? Well, don't go if you expect a culinary show. At best, it is an amateur stage performances, with some humour...sometime.

Older ships have order design, but overall the refurbishing respect the original style. Beige. Cleanliness: spotless!!

Cabin / Stateroom

We had been assigned an adapted cabin, as we had purchased an 'obstructed view garanted' cabin (last minute). The view was mostly ok, we can see ocean and shores above the lifeboat. Cabin was huge, so was the bathroom.
