This cruise was recommended by House of Travel and in some aspects we were disappointed as we were told that as long as we had evening wear on we could dine in any of the restaurants on board. This was not true and we were refused entry ... Read more

Excellent food--a real surprise given the decline of cruise food in recent years. Entertainment very spotty--a couple of very good guest singers, so-so production shows (maybe I've seen too many) bad comedian in the theater, but a good ... Read more

I started not to write a review since the itinerary is changing. However, I do have some suggestions to pass on for anyone going on a cruise with tour information. We did a pre-cruise for 10 days. We booked with Kensington Tours. I ... Read more
