The cruise was superb, nice stops , great service, cleanliness at the highest level. The food everywhere was superb, highlights were Jacques first, Red Ginger a close second, Toscana s and Polo. The best salad certainly was the Watermelon and Duck salad served at Red Ginger. The Tournedos Rossini at Jacques was incredible as well as the Mille Feuilles dessert. At Toscana s I had The Filet mignon covered with a Gargonzola cheese sauce. I literrally cut my filet mignon with my fork. The tiramisu there was to die for. Anyway not a bad meal or a bad choice anywhere, the food was great. The Suites was great , the bedding and towels were first class. I could not find fault anywhere. The few things missing, more flowers or flower arramgements on the tables . One small annoyance was the fact that they did not have any way for you to verify your credit statement in your cabin, the only way is to go down to the customer service desk and ask for a printout. The other bugaboo was that they do not put the charge for daily tips on your invoice until the last day. Entertainment was not great but its a small ship. Small ships have many advantages, like no lineups, elevator when you want them, availability everywhere but one thing that suffers is usually entertainement

Excellent Service, best Cuisine on the seas

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin B3 7084
Large accesible room, I have mobility issues so the grab bars in the bathroom were superb. I use a wheelchair and there was plenty of room for it in the room. The only drawbacks were a room door that was not automatic, so to get out I needed someone to hold the door, and the same for the balcony door. Otherwise everything else was great.

    absolutely gorgeous city. Perfect if you are in a wheelchair, the whole city is very accesible. You can roll to the city right from where the ship docks. They have shuttles available to take you to the city core, but they are not needed, there is a beautiful walk into the city by the seaside, and then most of the core is flat with curb cuts everywhere. Delightful
