What to know - no glitz, no crowds, no pools. Instead - beautiful scenery, friendly helpful staff, daily enrichment, low key enjoyable entertainment, menus that reflect locations, and interesting ports.
What to do - Included with your cruise, at no additional cost, at each port, is - bus, guide(s), admission to various sites. (‘Premium’ tours are available for additional purchase).
We’ve enjoyed loads of big ship cruises, and weren’t sure we’d enjoy the small boat, older crowd experience. It was wonderful: met interesting people, enjoyed port lectures, visited historically significant places, learned so much.
Ample cabin, larger than inside cabins on large cruise ships. New, clean. Did not miss having a window or balcony because ship has a number of exterior sitting areas that are close to cabins.
