Sail Date: Oct 2022

We wanted a cruise to simply relax and not run ragged with shore excursions. We did take 1 shore excursion which turned out to be pretty good. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. So exceptional we asked for the same table each night just to be with the same waiter, assistant waiter and headwaiter. All of the crew smiled and said hello including the officers. The theater shows were fantastic including the ice show. My only complaint is the drink prices were too high, a rum & coke $12.97 incl. 18% tip. A cosmopolitan $15.34 incl. 18% tip, lowest price wine $10.62 incl.18% tip . It's not that they gave you a lot of liquor it was a measured shot and in some cases the cocktail wasn't made right, a cosmopolitan does not get sour-mix. In spite of that it was a wonderful cruise.
