I spent two nights in Marseille, France, before the cruise began. Because of weather conditions we were taken by coach to Cannes where we boarded.
I was in an inside cabin on deck 11, which was quiet adequate for my needs.
The stewards, Donald and Mariavan, were very helpful and caring.
I was very satisfied with the food on board, both buffet and dining room.
I did not find the entertainment in the theatre to my liking but that was not a problem. There was music in some of the lounges which I enjoyed. I found the lectures given by Susan about the ports we were to visit very informative.
For me service overall was very good.
I enjoyed the ports that we visited. In Europe I did not take the excursions but I took those offered in Brazil. Some guides' command of English was not great but otherwise I enjoyed them.
I would go again but it will take a lot of saving to be able to afford another cruise!
I like the inside cabin. Because it was dark once the lights were off it was easy to sleep.
I was able to get access to the deck very close to my cabin.
