Review summary


The Cruise was wonderful with only a few glitches. 

We were not told that we needed visas for Turkey beforehand.  Created some confusion and a hassle to get them done online.  Turned out that we were never asked for them.  At $20.00 each quite a lot of money for the Turkish Government.

Would like to see more "seminars" on board.  History, Arts, people etc.

The Port talks were only OK.

Willy and Malaya were the best. None better. They kept our cabin ultra clean and always with a smile.

Ship tip

We loved the ship. It is larger than I thought it would be but the layout and design are excellent.
