– Cruise Passenger 

“…We had our 2 boys (ages 7 and 9) with us, and they loved everything about the trip. The ship was beautiful and very well maintained–if a little “glitzy” for our simple tastes. Our cabin had a very comfortable queen-sized bed, a single-sized pull-out sofa, and a single-sized fold-down bunk…”

– Cruise Critic 

“…The waiters, as the cabin staff, were their usual cheerful and friendly personalities, the theatre entertainment was excellent with first class shows both by dance and classical presentations.There was a great range of other musical entertainment in the many bars throughout the ship, and a great variety of other activities to fill the time whilst at sea…”
