Choice of ports, tours on land, and time on land were all terrific, and the seamless high level of service on board this very small ship was exceptional.
A small ship -- we had only 125 passengers -- allows for a much more personal experience that feels much more like a vacation with friends ("Hey, come for a trip with me on my yacht") than a feeling of being on an "ocean cruise."
The All-American nature of this cruise line, with most staff members college-age students from U.S. colleges rather than professional workers from other countries, not to mention a completely U.S. deck and ship crew, heightened the feeling of enjoying our own country.
Brand-new, equivalent to any nice hotel. Good storage space, comfortable verandah, satisfactory furniture and very attractive Cape Cod style furnishings.
