Great staff but the ship and activities could use improvement

We chose this cruise for the itinerary; we'd never been to ports of call. The staff was friendly and attentive, always ready to help. Our Main Dining Room staff was excellent, from the Head Waiter to our ...

Beautiful ship but crowded

Our first cruise. Were always reluctant to do so but gave it a try regardless. Generally enjoyable. However, I prefer to go to a location and explore for days, not hours. No regrets but would not necessarily seek ...

Always a good trip, but the ship lacked some key elements.

For a cruise to the Greek Isles, I was shocked that there was no lectures on the history or legends. The only thing close was the showing of Salvador Dali's Disney movie, which was accompanied by it's history. The ...
