We chose this cruise for a break after the Christmas festivities. Fewer crowds. Took the included tours. While informative, somewhat boring. Will consider “pay “ tours in the future. I strongly DO NOT recommend included tour in Cartegena. On the bus looking at the poverty of the area then to a less than photographic lighthouse. Then back on the bus. No time to explore/ shop in the city prior to boarding. We had the ES1 suite. Nice amenities. However, water leak from toilet 2 days in a row. Crew was prompt to fix it on day 2. Few activities on board so LOTS of downtime and looking for things to do on sea days. This is our first “small ship “ cruise. Good staff/customer ratio. Staff willing to chat and share their stories. Able to see many of the same customers and get to know each other more easily than the larger ships. Overall, good cruise. Excellent staff. Food OK. Evening shows good. Cabin staff 5stars!
