We got this cruise as a gift from our sons for our 40th anniversary. The scenery was breath taking. The food on board was nothing to write home about but the ship was extremely clean. Never offer to share a table because the table has to be filled before they serve you. We were at a table for 8 people the wait time was 45 minutes. Check your plates or bowls for metal bolts or hair before eating. Not a big variety of food (American cruise should have a lot more food from America). The shows were good and entertains. The casino was fun but not big on payouts. The bars were a little slow in service. Never pick anytime dining because you are limited to one dining room till after 7:15. I am a smoker and had to go to 17th floor to enjoy a cigarette it was outside in the back of the boat. But if I smoked cigars they had a inside lounge. Don’t bother getting a balcony if you smoker because even though it’s outside you cannot smoke on it.

Amazing

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BC C231
The cabin was very clean. Other cruises I have taken they always decorate the towels, only one time our towels were decorated.
