Sail Date: Sep 2018

Signed up for the great itinerary. I did thorough research of each port prior to embarkation. The excursions were poorly organized. Far to many people on each excursion. Much lost time at each port. Limited information onboard about excursions. Excursion director was hard to understand.

Prior to this trip, I have now been on 4 ocean cruises and 3 river cruises. The Cruise director of this ship was the worst of the seven. Was silly and tried to be funny.

Embarkation and disembarkation was well organized. Room were exceptional as well as the service of steward. Beautiful ship with lots of options for onboard experiences.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

Cabin was spacious and cabin service were great.

Would make one comment regarding cabin - you should provide good water. The water provided did not taste good. Had to request bottled water.

Port Reviews


Too many people taken to each visited site at the same time..
