Good experience overall, one or two irritating faults

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Lisbon

Good points of the trip: excellent itinerary, including overnight in Havana ,(although we didn't make the Cayman islands because of bad weather). A night in Montego Bay is a challenge, most of the ship stayed on-board. The ship cabin was excellent, crew friendly, reception efficient, public areas kept clean and fellow passengers amenable.

The films for three weeks were shown on six different occasions.
