Cabin review: A19048 Aqua Class
Love the balcony, the fancier shower with all the assorted nozzles and rain therapy shower head, and the water and tea always in the room along with canapés at night. This particular cabin had a bit of noise from the moving of the chairs on the next floor up...heard them a couple of times....not bad....just did notice it....so if you are light sleeper you might want to check out what is above you. I think I heard it around 6 a.m. once or twice. I would take this cabin again though without hesitation as it did not really bother me.Read All Aqua Class (A1) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Agapey Chocolate Factory Tour
Booked the chocolate tour online with the owner and he gave us a map so we could just walk from the cruise ship...an easy walk...some others did take a taxi. He had us taste the raw ingredients and explained where they were from etc. Then he showed us how the machines worked and explained what each did. Then he had us taste the candy! Incredible...my faves the dark chocolate with rum and caramel inside; the chocolate with almonds and others liked the coconut one too...the owner has a passion for his business and it shows. He limits the tour to just ten people so be sure you book early. I really learned a lot and really enjoyed the tastings...And I bought some bars to take back to share with other friends on the ship. I am going back next January as you cannot buy the chocolate online so I must return!
George Washington House
We took a cab over to the George Washington House tour and he waited for us and then returned us back to the ship. We watched the educational film as I did not know that George had been there with his sickly brother for a month back in the day. Martin was a very good tour guide and I would have loved to have had time to stay for the Dinner with George.
