Food and Dining

5 out of 5
What can I say! It is the best food of any ship we have sailed on. We enjoyed the option of open dining to meet people from all over the world.


5 out of 5
Good variety of entertainment with plenty of things in the ships program to do. We especially enjoyed the cooking classes on board.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
When you have 2 staff to every one passenger, you have service that is adequate for all your needs. We were most impressed with the friendly service of all the staff.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is mid-sized with every ammenity desired. It is beautiful and easy to get around with all the assets of a larger ship. Very impressive!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The stateroom was actually a little larger than we expected. It was clean and nicely decorated with plenty of closet/drawer space. A nice touch was a tub in the bathroom.

Don't Miss: Horse drawn trolley for a good tour of the port.
