We were interested in the ports of this cruise since this was an area we had not seen before. We have been on at least 5 other cruise lines and found the food to be superior to any we have experienced. We were impressed that the food was so consistently good at all the restaurant locations as well as the cabin service. The chef is a master and the wide vaiety of choices as well as the preparation of each meal was just outstanding. The service was excellent from our butler to the wait staff to all persons we encountered throughout the ship. Some of the ports were not as interesting as would be ideal. The excursions were the only items in which we were a bit disappointed. The excursion experience could be improved. Most of the guides were difficult to understand and not particularly good at their tasks. We liked the tour in Bilbao to the Guggenheim; that was excellent. The tour to Mt St. Michael was also a very good guide, but most of the others were average. The onboard experience was unequaled compared to the other cruise lines we have taken and every employee was obviously very well trained.

The food was delightful and so consistent in every restaurant the whole cruise.
