Travelling to the Amazon and visiting Rio were the reasons for choosing this trip. The Included trips were good but the additional excursions were excellent. The submarine ride in Barbados was a o e in a lifetime experience. On board, we both enjoyed the lecture series. We learned so much about the people,history, and politics of each country we visited. It made the shore excursions so much more interesting and valuable. The musical shows and skits were wonderful. Meeting new friends and then going on to a fabulous dinner together was a real treat.
Dining on this cruise was a real experience. It took several days to figure out the best times to go to the restaurant, where the best places were and who knew we could have room service every morning if we had wanted. That was a very pleasant surprise we enjoyed very much.
Last but not least, the crossing the equator ceremony was so much fun! We truly enjoyed every minute.
