We chose the cruise for the ports. It is very Port intensive and did enjoy the experiences . Could use a few more sea days as it’s quite exhausting. The older people had a lot of trouble navigating on the tours as there was a lot of uneven ground. The food in the main dining room is awful and is quite repetitive. A lot of fried unhealthy foods. Choices are also limited. The restaurant is very good. The staff in every area is excellent. They greet you with a smile even if they are not in direct contact with you. They are very accommodating with whatever your request. Also the laundry is very fast and efficient. The HAL tours have been good but only chose a few as they were very overpriced. Choose to do mainly private tours at a quarter of the price. Was very happy with this decision.

Old, boring!

Cabin Review

Vista Suite with Verandah
Cabin A 143
Old, mold in shower, chipped furniture, Sofa and chair, patio cushions stained. Room is very tiny. Had issues with getting hot water in the shower. It’s an old tired ship. Should have been sold long ago.
Upper Promenade Deck Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins, Balcony Cabins
