We were on the last tour before the ship goes into dry dock for refurbishing. Although the decor was dated and showed some wear, the ship had a sort of retro charm about it and everything was in working order. As others have mentioned, the ... Read more

Main reason for going on this cruiseline are for the destinations not for the regular cruise experience. No casino, no rock climbing walls, no art auctions. The ship was due for a re-fit so it's good to see that this is about to ... Read more

I chose this tour on the recommendation of a friend and travel professional. I felt completely duped. the fire on board would have been forgivable if the crew had remotely been professional. Instead, the chief service manager opted to ... Read more

The itinerary was very interesting, and having traveled on the ship previously, you can always expect to meet up again with people that you know. The atmosphere on board is comfortable and friendly. The ship offers good value for the cost, ... Read more
