To be honest it was luck as we have never cruised before. We like the fact this was a smaller ship with under 950 passengers. Everything about this cruise is high quality. The ship itself is bright, spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The Deluxe Cabin had a large and comfortable bed and was just the right size (for us) with a lovely balcony.
The main attraction is the staff, they are truly amazing and its clear they love their jobs. They were always looking to make our time as enjoyable as possible. They couldn't do enough for you, but not in an annoying way. We felt special from the staff who cleaned our cabin twice a day to waiters, bar staff etc etc.
The food was also high quality. Whether in the buffet style restaurant, the main restaurant (where service was top class), or the al la carte restaurants. Service, presentation, taste and comfort all excellent.

The team asked if there was anything else we would like and I said it would have been nice to have a kettle as there was only a coffee making machine in the room. You could order tea at anytime via room service. Anyway we arrived back to the room and a kettle had been left. This is an example of staff doing everything they could to make you as comfortable as possible.
