This was our first cruise of any sort, but hopefully will not be our last. Wonderful experience, staff at all levels were superb. Plenty to do and see every day. Our stateroom was bigger than we expected and the bed really comfortable. The excursions were on the whole really good and very interesting and the guides both from the boat and the local ones were excellent. The daily newspapers and the daily information sheets were really helpful. Wifi connection was much better than expected. The restaurant was great, especially liked the no reservation policy. It was nice not always to have a buffet in the evening. Sometimes the wine service was slow. The only reason we have not given it 5 stars is the tipping problem. Not only having to worry about it, but also we did find the guidelines given to us quite confusing. We would like to either have it included in the price or the guidelines made more simple.
