We were attracted by the interesting Asian itinerary and the small ship size ( 300 pax max )
The cruise was of a high quality with both the hardware and software ( service levels ) in top order. The positive and optimistic attitude of the crew from the Captain, Officers to deck hands was outstanding. This created an excellent passenger experience.
The cabin was extremely comfortable and expertly maintained by the delightful stewardess Siri - every request was met with a professional "can do " attitude and a broad smile. We had an ocean view cabin ( first time without a balcony for many cruises ) which was spacious and expertly designed. Having viewed the option of having the bed next to the window or French balcony, which was the layout on the inserted new section of the ship, our preference was for the original layout where we could sit by the window and checkout the sunset or port activity from the surprisingly large window.
