THE GOOD THINGS: A very pretty ship....lots of outside space for deck chairs and eating. Maps on every floor by the lifts to remind you where you are. We've been on a number of other cruise ships and the balcony cabin was one of the best ... Read more

If this had been our first cruise, it would have been our last! There is nothing good that can be said about this company. Using hotel ratings - the best they would get is 2 Star and that would be pushing it. Start with the cabin ..... ... Read more
