Was very good,embarkation was faultless,as was disembartion,cabin crew were very good,seen but not heard,the waiting staff and bar staff were all most helpful and polite, nothing was to much trouble the were a good team. a/c was perfect,and where the ship docked was always a place close enough to walk to town,which we did at every opportunity.
