From boarding to departure each day was anticipated. When you are older and used to the delightful areas of the "R" Ships, it becomes a full twenty nights of relaxing sea adventure. The Nautica crew was there to provide me with both concern and continual attempts to insure I had a pleasant voyage. I downgraded from my usual Veranda to an Ocean View Stateroom which proved to be adequate in every regard. It was the perfect size for one and the stewarts kept it clean and comfortable.

The food (cuisine) at every meal was too tempting to describe. To select one entree was a challenge as each one looked more delicious than the next. I ate too much. Service was "overboard" (no pun intended) and the array of deserts was each day better or as good as the day before. To decide to be pampered in the Main Dining Room or select choices from the Ninth Deck Buffet was a daily decision. I sat back in my chair afterward with contentment and the perfect Latte. I made the trip alone but was always joined by passengers eager to make friends.

Daily activities and the soft gentle comfort of the pool lounges provided constant enjoyment. Never was there a boring day. The Library had a good selection of fascinating reading material. The wrap around windows in the top floor Horizon Lounge provided a better view than the Officers Bridge and afternoon Tea Time had the three lovely violinists joined by the selection of tempting afternoon tidbits.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View

Cabin C1

Cabins on "R" Ships are small but well designed. There is adequate space to properly store clothes and belongings and the beds are far beyond the most comfortable ever. Reading bedside lights are well thought out. Bathrooms are small but cozy and adequate.
