Sail Date: Jan 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View

The itinerary was outstanding. The cruise had two legs, Miami to Barbados, and Barbados to Cape Town, all part of a 180-day around-the-world cruise.

On the first leg, we went from Miami through much of the Caribbean (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Devil's Island, Martinique,St. Lucia, Grenada, Tobago, Barbados).

On the second leg, we went to Brazil (Belem, Forteleza, Recife, Natal), then transatlantic to Sao Tome, Benin, Togo, Uganda, Namibia, ending at Cape Town, South Africa.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View

Cabin C2

The stateroom, an outside Deluxe Ocean View with a porthole was pleasant and a good value for the money. Using the shelf in front of the porthole was convenient. Being on a lower deck made the ship's motion easy to handle until we his a rough sea day.

Interesting place

St. Lucia

The area around the dock terminal seemed unsafe

Cape Town

Winelands and Safari Tour was interesting. The Table Bay Hotel was nice!


Watch the gutters when walking. An interesting, friendly place. Loved the museum.


Pleasant , friendly, safe place.


Too long a wait in the terminal area without food.
