Overall a great cruise, the staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. Unfortunately the hard sell of all extras is off putting which involves extortionate wine prices for average wines, the cheapest bottle was $37, high drink prices in general, no draft beers after 2/3 days, restaurant extras for certain meals, i.e lobster and every other restaurant apart from the windjammer buffet style dining area carried a cost. We all expect the never ending photo opportunities but this was somewhat excessive and bordering on annoying.
We enjoyed the ports of call and went on 3 pre booked excursions which were well organised and informative. At most of the ports it was easy to make your own arrangements to sight-see and was more cost effective.
The ship also had indoor smoking areas and certain nights for smoking in bars/casino which spoilt activities and the smell of stale smoke in the entertainment areas was ever present.
The food was enjoyable but repetitive, one of our party was vegetarian and the choice was bland curry or pasta and tomato sauce most nights; in comparison with other cruises the food and variety was lacking.
