Sail Date: Dec 2022

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary: visiting 10 Caribbean islands in 2 weeks with very few sea days. We are not interested in the cruise 'experience'. For us the ship was a place to sleep and eat between visits. In addition we wanted a smaller ship and, very important, adults only.

We had no illusions that this would be a luxury cruise but we were very happy with what we experienced for our money. The cabin (we had a balcony cabin) was clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space. Think functional/practical rather than luxury. I would have liked more toiletries in the bathroom, not just soap and bodywash. Full marks to the cabin stewards for the work they did.

The food was good and plentiful with a range of places to eat, plus some 'chargeable' eateries. The service could be patchy: some days it was very good, others a bit slow. The all-inclusive encompassed a wide range of drinks.
