Review summary

Although a nearly 30 yr ship with some insurmountable design issues, thoughtful renovations to cabins make for very nice accommodations.  Seemingly nearly all Indonesian crew, terrific at all levels of service.  Mostly good stopovers, a mixed bag on excursions,  My suggestion is to spend much time on-line before departing and pick your own.  The cruise line should send folks to update their excursion resources. 250-310 passenger cruise line seems the right size for ease of food service, embarking and disembarking.  On-board entertainment is the downside, practically none.  How does a cruise line economically provide worthwhile entertainment to 300?  In a a few words: with a lot of creativity.

Surprisingly well thought out. Room to store everything. Very functional. Only downside, two large non-opening portholes, no balcony or picture window, inherent in a 30 yr ship. Terrific cabin service with bed turn downs, fresh fruit, etc.

Ship tip

300 pass., good size for value and embarking/disembarking. Ship is in very good shape, recent renovation, but some old design issues hold it back from being "perfect". Terrific crew, food mostly great. Free non-alcoholic "smoothies" all the time, poolside. Internet $$$ - sold by MB's, not time.
