O.K. Just o.k. The ship was gorgeous though. The spa was fabulous. I had the best pedicure that I have ever had in my life! The young south african girl made my somewhat "not so great looking" toenails look amazingly pretty.

The waterfall in the pool was so refreshing. My husband and I went to the pool everyday. The cruise was seven days and had no excursions. We didn't mind that at all.

The food was very bland though. It lacked taste. Plus we had requested to sit at a table of 8 when booking the cruise instead we were placed with a table for four. Our dinner companions were two single women. I didn't enjoy that too much. My husband did though as he got a lot of attention. A little too much attention. After two days of it, I complained and requested another table. We took the two ladies with us and were placed at a table with a family of four. It was a bit better. However it just wasn't fun being with them. We all felt sort of forced together. They had been deserted by a previous couple and was feeling kind of put off.

The pub was great with late night karaoke. Most of the ship was 85% british so most didn't show emotion or anything until someone sang "Sweet Caroline" and the whole pub came alive. Brits really love American songs. I, being American went all over the ship trying to make friends and most people appeared stuffy and low keyed.

We didn't like the "class" thing. Where different people dined according to class and you couldn't go to certain restaurants. All in all it was a fine experience but we wouldn't do it again.

Not good. Very bland. Quality wasn't great either. Who can get excited over boiled potatoes?

Beautiful. But the bathroom toilet smelled. It was more like a ship's toilet the some other luxury ship's toilet.

Loved the karaoke and the entertainment. The shows were excellent. Boring and not well planned tour of the galley. Didn't like the "flea market" atmosphere for buying T shirts etc on the ship, found it tacky and lacked taste.

No excursions on this trip

It was i.k. but wouldn't do it again.
