We were so excited to try this small ship. But there were many things that were disappointing. The A/C was not adequate for the hot, humid climates. The water was brown the whole time we were on the ship, although I know there was a lot of time spent trying to fix the problem, but we were never sure was the problem was. Not a lot of explanation was given. The food was pretty good, not great. More local fresh fruit would have been a good addition. Wine with dinner was nice. We had one of two Owner's Suites. The suite itself was nice, but the balcony was so small it was almost unusable. Service for our cabin was great. Pool was a small salt water pool. However, there was no fresh water rinse off. So we only used a couple of times. Excursions were included. Pretty well done. Our speakers were excellent . We enjoyed the talks very much. The ship's staff were good, although the cruise director was obnoxious. She was loud and brash. Entertainment was not inspiring. Would be nice to have more upbeat music for listening and dancing. This ship has a broad list of itineraries, so there a a lot of choices. All in all ok experience, but will probably not go with them again.

Could have been better
