Chose this cruise based on the experience of friends and acquaintances. While the cruise was very good, the time of year limited the use of the entire longboat because of weather and temperature. The entire upper deck was off limits during the week and the room balconies, though spacious, could not be used.
Staff service was spectacular. Regardless of the many roles and positions, every staff member was knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and focused on making the cruise experience memorable. The staff in the dining rooms added a culinary service dimension generally available only in the most extraordinary restaurants. The cuisine was delicious and satisfying.
The cabin was well-appointed and comfortable, reflecting the beauty of the longboat overall. Contemporary design and constant maintenance enhanced the indoor experience of the cruise.
