Smallish ship of 1250 passengers means never feeling crowded, but still having pretty much the full cruise ship experience. We were concerned with open dining but never had to wait the 2 times we went at about 5:15PM.
Food was tasty. A couple of special lido events, of mussels, canada potato, canada french fries. We missed at least one. Did they eliminate dessert evening? Not a big deal after having experienced 3 of them.
The entertainment host was American, and talented mid-atlantic fellow. His enthusiasm never seemed forced and was contagious.
The captain sounds like Liam Neeson.
