Wonderful experience!

October

Pros: Amazing staff and amenities, very safe and fun cruise line.

Cons: Not enough activities that pertain to a younger generation

Recommended: Yes

For as much money as we spent, we felt bored at times while on the ship. It would be nice to have activities designed for all ages, not just the older generation.

Amazing Experience

May

Pros:

Cons:

Recommended: Yes

We liked the fact that this was a smaller ship, with less passengers. Our cabin stewards were AMAZING! Very helpful and tended to our stateroom with so much pride in their job. A huge bonus, was the fact that each day there is a Catholic Mass on board the ship, such a treat for us. We found that the bartenders were not that friendly, and didn't seem to be interested in their job. The wait staff in the dining room was hit or miss. Some were friendly some, not so much. Overall a beautiful holiday!
