I had been researching around the world cruises for the last four years, in preparation for giving myself one as a retirement gift. After comparing many, I selected this one for its outstanding itinerary, which no other ship came even close to.
The ship was just refurbished weeks before we embarked, and was like new. The crew was excellent, with superb service. The entertainment was very good, considering the smaller size of this ship. Both Cruise Director's, first half, Leslie, second half Ray, were wonderful, each in his own way. As were the ship's entertainment staff. The enrichment lecturer's were wonderful. The guest entertainer's were mostly very good.
I really love the layout and public room's on this ship.
Accessible. Didn't need one, but it was all that was left, when I cleared the wait list...I offered to exchange it with anyone needing it.
Naturally very roomy, superb bed and linens. Excellent lighting, storage, climate control, television...(channel 4, the bridgecam view was my "porthole". :)
Location, right behind medical center, offered the smoothest ride on the ship. Easy to get to anywhere on the ship, in minutes.
