BACKGROUND...This was our 26th cruise. We did three 12-day cruise's back-to-back.

STATEROOM...Outside window, average size cabin with plenty of storage, clean new carpet in room, bathroom looked almost new.

SHIP INFO...Small intimate ship where some of the crew even learn your name. Ship stability was not a factor even-though it was small. Excellent crew who really want to please you. No lines anywhere, no need to save a deck chair.

DINING...Better food in the dining room than bigger ships.

ACTIVITIES...Plenty of activities available although not as many as on bigger ships.

SERVICE...Best service I have seen in 26 cruises, simply outstanding!

ENTERTAINMENT...The five production shows were EXCELLENT, presented in a theater in the round type setting. The other entertainers were average.

SHORE EXCURSIONS...Typical shore excursions but with only 675 passengers on-board you did not get the cattle-call feeling you often get on the big ships. Two of our tours only had 12-15 people.

DISEMBARKATION...Smooth and well done.

SUMMARY...Really enjoyed our first small ship experience. In the future we plan to do many more.

Cabin review:

Nice room, quiet, middle of the ship, good storage, new carpet, bathroom looks very new. Beds could be better, hard as a rock.
