Booked last minute since we were in FL, as expected the crowd was older and since its a smaller ship activities were smaller scale. The food was excellent and I have not found another cruise line with better professional service.
The ports were a bit disappointing since on everyone except Key West you had to be on an excursion to see anything other than the pier. I wish the times of music and late snack were more conducive to those of us that are early to bed and early to rise. By far the best check in and off loading of a ship we have experienced.
Food and Dining
One band that was supposed to play poolside was canceled the day we skipped our port, very disappointing they were the best on board. Music needs to be a little more upbeat to promote the mood
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice to have a small couch and chair to sit on beside the bed
If you are unhappy with your dinner seating speak to the dining room staff, they are so accommodating. If you have the open seating make sure to make reservations and you can book 3 nights at a time, very helpful.
Bring a bottle/person of wine for room without corkage fee, Nice for before dinner.
