Review summary

Overall very disappointed. This is advertised as a luxury cruise and I was looking forward to the food which was no better than most chain restaurants. Our schedule kept changing and the 2 ports were very boring

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Embarkation was excellent once we got thru Bermuda''s Covid requirements

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Some food was great - but some just mediocre - nothing impressive about the food in any restaurant - was expecting better quality

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
There is nothing to do on the ship but read - and the constant classical music will put you to sleep - main pool area was always very hot and humid - but the stern pool was lovely

Entertainment

1 out of 5
boring

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our room stewards and bar personal were wonderful - However the main dining room was very rushed and the female sommelier was nasty and ignored us.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
ship was very clean - but not my style - why the fireplaces and fur/wool throws when we are in 85 degree weather!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Smaller than expected

Ship tip

Bring a good book - there are no activities onboard and excursions are limited

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Fast and efficient
