GOOD ITINERARY ALTHOUGH WE MISSED PONTA DELGADA

I chose this cruise because I did a similar "repositioning" cruise last year on the Preziosa and enjoyed it. This time we were going to New York, which I have never been to. Embarkation was not good this time - ...

A wonderful rest and magnificent stopovers!

We chose this, our first cruise for two reasons: 1. The rest and relaxation it would afford us and 2. the places we would get to see. We were not disappointed; every place had its own unique history and was a ...
