Chose as a Birthday gift for wife and to follow two other family members. Did not see much of anything. All booked excursions were made impossible because if Medical issues on ship causing long delays or medical issues on the Tour itself. Point being the atmosphere during a global virus is not the best. When Staff is not forthcoming about medical issues. Evacuations, transfers of potential carriers it is hard to enjoy something you though might be a good time. It was not. More like torture. On the plus side, the TV in the room worked most of the time. The Room was very nice and the steward was fantastic. The hot coco and coffee machine made social distancing easier on the fan tail. The bad, Social distancing on a cruise ship is impossible! Food was seldom hot, more often undercooked and Luke warm. Food was plentiful, but not food we would chose to repeat. Hamburgers were yuk, Pizza fair. Ice cream pathetic. Deserts looked good, but often were a disapointments. Moral don't book a cruise just prior to WHO declaration of a global Pandemic. The cruise companies are taking a beating now, but so did we!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Balcony
Cabin DB
Beautiful cabin, till you open the balcony to be staring at a dirty greasy giant orange life boat that seats hundreds of passengers. You can see over it to view a distant shoreline, but nothing down. It became apparent why they offer "deals" on cruises, to get rid of rooms with limited or no view.
