It was by far the most enjoyable and relaxing tour we have ever been on. Being on a ship with only 170 passengers was probably what made it special. The tour director, Gary was unbelievable. He was with us from when we embarked, he was ... Read more

This was cruising for the totally gutless traveler. If you are totally new of overseas travel it might be good otherwise, no. EVERYTHING is totally scripted you are on a bus tour most days while your ship is "sailing through the ... Read more
