We love the size of this ship. The cabins are a very nice size, the dining in Compass Rose is very good. the wait staff there is wonderful. We do not like the specialty restaurants because the portion sizes are too large. The tours can be a bit harsh but the ports visited did not have any luxury buses to offer. Most tours were doable. This is a port issue not the ship problem.
The refurbishment of the ship is very nice. The cabins did loose some storage space but you are not making the cabin your home for life. TV was sporadic along the west coast of Africa. We liked the entertainment that was done by the ship staff and dance crew. We did not care for the entertainers that were brought on board for limited shows. The exception was a wonderful children's choir from a local port area.
We have booked the Amazon on this ship for the summer.
This cabin was very well located on the ship. A bit noisy but you are not in your cabin that much.
Had to cancel this port due to Hurricane Matthew. We were unable to dock due to weather.
Gardens were lovely.
Sintra is interesting.
Our hotel Lapa Palace was not accessible to the bus so we had a half mile walk to the bus on cobblestones. not fun/
