Everything on this cruise was very well organised and went smoothly. The excursions were well executed and going on the zodiac I felt very safe. All land excursions were well organised with lots of expedition staff to help and answer questions. The room was like a 5 star hotel room. Air con was individual which made a difference to individual room comfort. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The service in all areas of the ship was excellent. Food was very good and the bread, pastries and cheeses were excellent. There was a good selection of drinks and service at the bars was great. The cruise guests were American, French and Australians. I am glad there were about 30 Australians aboard as socially it would be different without that friendly Australian manner and there also was the language barrier. Each night there was music entertainment which was ok. The main lounge was a good place to gather for the entertainment and to also sit and have a chat. I would highly recommend this company for cruising although I would enquire about the guests nationalities. A range of different nationalities is the best.

Luxury ship with excellent service

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin DS 328
Great cabin on the 3 rd level so less movement. It was on the same level as the main lunge which was very convenient. It had a balcony which was great for viewing and also to let in fresh air. Separate toilet. Good size for a ship walkin shower. TV with movies and ship talks available. Fridge with complimentary minibar. Plenty of water. Choice of pillows. Any request was promptly attended to.
