  • Cabin Type: Obstructed Oceanview

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. We had ages 18 - 81 in our group of 7. 81 y.o. on a travel scooter worked out perfect. All ports were at the pier so she was able to come with us at each stop. The staff and guests all helped her get around the ship with grace and ease. A couple minor medical mishaps along the way with 26 y.o. and 81 y.o. were well taken care of with special care by the medical staff. All the servers and stewards were wonderful, happy and attentive. My only complaint is the room lighting. It is very dark even in an ocean view room you definitely need a lighted makeup mirror to see. Perhaps LED bulbs in the staterooms or a makeup mirror in the bathroom would improve this. Food was good and always available. We did not go to any specialty dining on board unless it was included. We used all the main dining and buffet areas, Lotus Garden and O'Sheehans. Enough variety for everyone. We enjoyed the entertainment all over the ship everyday. Port stops were fabulous, on time arrivals and departures with expeditious disembarkation. Overall a great trip!! Thank you to the wonderful staff!!

For the 18-28 y.o. family members as it is challenging physically. They said it was really unique and that they enjoyed the time there. Not much in the way of tour guide. You are left on your own after a couple pointers.

The driver was nice but not very talkative beyond the key highlights.

They told us to meet in the wrong location at Pier 1. I called them when no one arrived and was told to go to Pier 6 with our group of 7 including our 81 y.o. mom on her travel scooter. This was mostly challenging and stressful trying to navigate through the hundreds of people and pier markets. Once arrived they did not have a ramp to get her on the boat so she could not go and no refund offered. The guide was hard to hear and should have used a speaker. Overall not a great experience and over priced for what it was.
