We boarded the boat in Rio, after a delay to sanitize the ship. We did receive an email with the delay in boarding the day before and managed to check our bags and take the tour we arranged. We were given sandwiches and lemonade while we waited. We were aware that most of the ports were small without experienced tour guides and air conditioned buses. We found some private tours that were excellent. The ports were small but interesting. We did do our homework and investigated the ports before we left home. My husband was disappointed in the pizza bar, no pepperoni. I did like the pizza. He did enjoy the hamburgers. The food in the dining room was very good and we had very good service. We liked the cappuccinos. We also enjoyed high tea in the horizon. If we were hungry we were able to find some place that had food. We also had people sick on board and lost the laundry, library and salt and pepper shakers. It was inconvenient but it only lasted a few days. Some people would not agree to quarantine so they had to disembark. People were making poor choices about eating and drinking when they bought off the ship. We were visiting third world counties. We had been on other South American cruises and had been warned on the dangers. We had two excellent enrichment speakers. Their topics were interesting and helpful when visiting the ports. We learned a lot from the speakers

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B1 6066
Our room steward was excellent. Since all rooms are suites, we thought the room would be larger. The mattress was excellent. The bathroom was small but adequate. We always had bottled water in our room.
