Sail Date: May 2022
Cabin:

The cruise was overall adequate. We booked the owners suite. It was large but mostly empty space and not so grand furnishings. For the price we paid, $16,000 for both, it could have been much nicer. The crew was very friendly and helpful and onboard entertainment was interesting. The tours were excellent. If one likes to drink there was alcohol flowing, all included, for most of the day. We met some nice people.

The only problem we had was both of getting digestive problems , diarrhea and stomach cramps, from the food onboard. I had to skip one day of onshore excursions. The medical person on board gave me some medicine which helped. I skipped most of the meals and actually lost 3 pounds. After several days I ate a dinner and got sick again. The medical person told me several other people had similar medical problems and he thought it might have something to do with the new menu.

Hopefully they will find the reason for the illness.
