A ONCE in a life time experience
Destination: South America
The Amazon is interesting but is just a very long, very wide river...we sailed down it for about 500 miles. Jungle on all sides and More interesting to see once as were the ports. It is obvious they are not used to tourists and even the ship arranged tours were primitive as one would expect. After leaving the Amazon we stopped at the islands know as Devil's Island. The ship's tender takes us only to the Isle Royal since Devil's island is too dangerous to approach. The three French prision islands are unique and almost untouched by tourists ... they were abandoned about 1950 and were very interesting. Then on to a couple of Carib. islands which I had seen before. We had to skip Trinidad (which I had not been to) since there was no room for us....I suspect they wanted the bigger ships instead of us. Then back to Ft. Lauderdale.
The captain, Justin, was outstanding in every respect and was always mingling with the passangers - even at breakfast and lunch. A great guy!
As I said a once in a lifetime experience. Very expensive but consider the size Bobby3334 Less
Cabin review: E
Actually made into a queen; I stayed in a window room although I always stay in a balacony but these were crazy expensive on this small ship so I opted for this....as expected...adequate
