Review summary

The ship was clean and in great condition. The service is very good everywhere. The food is OK, nothing outstanding, nothing bad. Everything seems to be an upcharge so the price of the cruise adds up quickly. They evidently force the housekeeping staff to come to your room on the last night to beg for a "10" rating or else they will be fired (so they say), that's incredibly awkward. Overall, it's a good cruise and the ports of call are lovely.

Ship tip

Service was great, but everything is an upcharge. That's why the initial price is low - you pay the rest during the cruise.
