Sail Date: May 2022

This cruise was included as part of a larger tour. The boat was small and cabins were miniscule, including two small beds with drawers underneath for storage (no closets) and a tiny bathroom which was a combined toilet and shower. The bathroom smelled like the worst port-a-potty, and we had to sleep with the cabin windows open just to avoid the smell. Staff was pleasant, entertainment was fun and the food was good. However, the terrible bathroom cast a pall over the trip.

Testing for Covid was conducted on the pier, and before anyone could board, everyone had to wait in the sun, with no seating, until all 75 passengers were tested. This took an hour and could have been conducted better if people were allowed on board as soon as their test was negative.

Most of the cruisers were mature adults; there were no children on board.
