Would definitely not recommend this cruise ship to others.

The itinerary stopped in unnecessary ports. 

The food was not good.

Ship was not kept up

Ship excursions way overpriced and information on their website was misleading, almost threatening.

Staff, except for excursions head, were very good and friendly.

Food and Dining

Did not at all live up to expectations
