Not 5 star at all. Basically a Manor House on water. Lovely decor but that's about if! Food not upto 5 star quality, drinks are ok but not a very good choice, bar service slow and waiter service hit and miss. Cabins are clean and newly decorated, balconies scruffy though. And now entertainment, awful! No atmosphere at all! Stupid 'Kiss the Fish' 10 min embarrassment for all by pool for crossing the equator (done a day late too), the cabaret room, went in a few times but acts on we're very poor, some young lad telling everyone has life story inbetween tinkling the ivorys, female violinist, female singer, some poor fellows trying to put on only what one can call a Butlind showcase night, a film one night 'Grease'! Man on guitar and a pianist played for about half hour every is and then in lounge bar. There was Fusvo each night until 2pm but just a voiceless man playing same records over and over again every night, people did venture into it as come 10/11pm everything else was closed. Daytime activities were talks, bingo, board & card games. White night party was best night but that was only because it was by the pool and the only thing laid on for everyone to join in with. I did ask why there was no background music anywhere and the captain said the clientele on this cruise didn't want it, but after that within half hour back ground music (quiet, sift, popular musuc) was played and everyone enjoyed it and remarked how it lifted the atmosphere especially around the pool area but within half an hour it was turned off again, never to be heard again. Never saw the entertainment manager at all except on White party night, oh tell a lie, I did, once in the lift then another occasion in the Buffett, he must have been at the GLBT meetings running every day. Something lacking, an atmosphere I believe on this cruise. The ports of call were rubbish too! Docking st what seemed industrial ports, bus trip to shopping malls unless you paid over $100 each to do a sight seeing tour from the cruise.
