We were pleasantly surprised about how good the food was on board, and how lovely the staff were, both in the dining room and the cabin stewards. We went on this cruise because we had never been to Cuba and we both love cruising so thought this was a good way to see a few parts of Cuba in one trip. The food far exceeded our expectations and the shore excursions that were included in the price were very good. All alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks were included too, which was very nice. We would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone who wanted to see Cuba (not just go to an all-inclusive for a week) although it is not meant for people with children - - the average age was about 50 to 75. It was not deluxe like Crystal Cruises, but also was very good value for the money. There were quite a few activities on board and a hot tub and pool so you certainly don't get bored on the couple of days at sea. The entertainment was absolutely fantastic - - so talented. Obviously we loved this cruise.

Really enjoyed the Celestyal Crystal
