Taken from the back of the ship.  While relaxing in the sauna and jumping i

The ship, staff and food were over the top. The variety of food was always tasty and beautifully displayed. Loved the gelato and the changing of flavors everyday. The staff is expertly trained and you couldn't help but fall in love with them; from the cooks, bartenders, housekeepers, and coffee/tea servers. No matter where you went it was never too crowded. The infinity pool and sauna were a delight as we sailed past glaciers and beautiful scenery. Had a Nordic treatment with heat and the ice room and it was amazing. For the price and the experience it was so worth it. That memory reruns in my mind often. Loved, loved, loved this trip! We had two excursions that went to private islands and they were awesome. Everything is well planned and executed to perfection. Yes, we paid for extra for the excursions, but they were wonderful. The entertainment was wonderful, and we enjoyed the staff's night when they all came out.

Cabin Review

The bed and coverings were great. Wonderful dark drapes if you wanted to block the light. The bathroom was great, with a heated floor and nightlight. Loved looking out the balcony at the beautiful scenery. Wonderful chocolates and snacks in the refrigerator every day, along with a coffee maker. The housekeeper staff was awesome, and I missed having my bed turned down when I returned home. It was a little crowded for space and drawers for all our clothes, but who wants to stay in their cabin anyway?!
