We chose this cruise as an inexpensive and fun way to get to Europe. The ship was older than previous TA cruises we've taken. We liked the smaller size of the ship because it was easier to learn our way around, and meant we bumped into the same people on a regular basis. We were disappointed that our inside cabin didn't have a fridge as on other ships, and that the gym was so small - all that constant eating required a daily visit to the gym!
The food was average, nothing special. The best thing I ate was the flourless chocolate cake, which I didn't see on the menu until the last night. (We didn't eat in the main dining room every night, so perhaps I missed it!) Service in the main dining room was generally good, but since we weren't regulars, it's hard to judge accurately.
Captain Merek was a delight, and very visible. The crew all seemed to take their jobs to heart and were willing to listen and solve whatever problems arose.
Standard size for an interior cabin, but no fridge. The bed was too low for our suitcases to fit underneath, but we did have ample closet space to store them. Directly under the R Bar (near the Centrum). If you go to bed early this is NOT the cabin for you, but if you're a night owl you'll never hear the barstools screeching across the marble floor.
Our first time in Key West so we just enjoyed wandering around
We had a wonderful private tour with 7 other couples
It was a rainy day and our time in port was brief so we just wandered around
It was a long walk from the port, but we enjoyed the city very much.
We live in the area so no excursion
