NOT worth the money!!!!! Not as advertised- food quality was far from excellent, Staff was rude and snobby, food was subpar, stays in port were far too short, watch out for the "diamond expert" selling jewelry at outrageous prices, praying on elderly vulnerable widows. Scandalous! Don't be mislead by their claim that this is so much better than the "Giant Commercial Lines." Silver Seas is just as commercial. Book your excursions on shore, you'll save about 20% bc Silver Seas up charges even though they probably get a referral commission on top of that - that is why the staff waits on the dock to "help you" get to your tour - they don't want you talking to the people on the docks and finding out you're being charged more on the ship, cabin electric is dangerous, it shorted out and almost electrocuted me, smoke and sparks under the bed!!! - and last but not least if you have children, beware - kids club is next to smoking lounge and the second hand smoke is horrible in Kids Club - my daughter complained of a headache after each visit to kids club, finally figured out why on the second to last evening...

Fun but would have liked it to be more personal for the cost. Helicopter ride was amazing!!!! Booked on ship and it was canceled and we rebooked on shore same exact thing for $100 less a person....
