Chose this cruise due to its unique ports of call and its timing with school holidays . We are aa family of 5 and booked two cabins one balcony and one internal cabin opposite each other. Ship appeared modern and well maintained, as its a smaller boat only additional activities offered are put put golf and rock climbing .

Boarding was poor , we purchased the Key program which was meant to give preferred boarding but as we were unable to pre check in online (even after trying for weeks) we were given absolutely no preference at check in. In whole found The Key program disappointing with little preferential treatment.

The cabins were extremely comfortable and gave the best sleep Ive had in long time- only tip is bring some tape to help with the block out curtains as the nights are very short. Plenty of storage space .

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 2D

Cabin was very comfortable - wife and I slept in comfortable double bed- kids sleep in single beds . Block out curtains aren't great so bringing some tape helps to bock out the morning rays. Bathroom small but adequate, Our rooms were the first on 9th deck so got a little bumpy at times but never uncomfortable.

try some of local restaurants - great to walk around. Marriot a good hotel choice
