I liked the smaller ship with less passengers. I liked the free wine with meals. Service was excellent. The cabins were very nice. Getting on and off the ship was very easy, stress free experience. I liked that hand hygiene was available at every restaurant. Food was excellent, with lots of choices for every meal. I particularly loved the smoothies in the morning and the soups at lunch. Room service 24 hours a day was nice although we only used it one time. Free drinks and snacks in our room was great for middle of the day snacking. The spa was wonderful but didn't stay open late enough to enjoy after the evening meal. The ship wasn't crowded and it was easy to move from one area to another. The free excursions was another selling point for us. We enjoyed all of them and never felt that we didn't see enough of the various ports. Time spent in port was adequate for shopping and sightseeing.
