Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Inside Stateroom

There was a suggestion to buy this [articular cruise and I liked the list of cities to visit, so I bought it.

In overall, I enjoyed the cruise! There was a pleasant surprise - I got a cabin with a window! Cabin was always clean; it was tidied up twice a day.

I read some complains about embarkation and disembarkation. My experience was different. Logistics was very good. We embarked with no problem (and disembarked), were provided with kind recommendations and attendance. Suitcases were taken directly to the cabin. Cabin was prepared earlier than expected. Yes, it is not big, but enough to have a rest and sleep at night. Even pillows were of different types (soft and "hard") to satisfy different habits.

Cabin Review

Inside Stateroom

There was a pleasant surprise - I got a cabin with a window! Cabin was always clean; it was tidied up twice a day. You had a wardrobe, a double bed , a TV , a chair, two bedside tables... All you need.

Towels are changed every day.!!! Beach towels are also provided, you can change them whenever you need. Room service worked well.
