This was my first cruise so I had nothing to compare it to. I worried firstly when I read some of the previous reviews however, I shouldn't have. As a cruise it was extremely good, we had no hassles whatsoever. The longest wait for a table at meal times was about 10 minutes and that only happened the once. The tours were comprehensive however, much cheaper to do it yourself once you got to Port. We found the service to be very good and the food was also excellent. We preferred to eat 'a-la-carte' most nights and we found the experience delightful. We shared tables with fellow guests every evening, mostly because we like to meet new people and because it enabled us to be seated immediately. The ship was OK to us, our stateroom although small was adequate for our needs. Overall the cruise was a good experience, we used all of the services aboard the ship, including the gym, spas and sauna's and found everything in good working order. My only negative is that I felt Fanning Island although beautiful, was a long way to go for a few hours on a beach. My only other recommendation would be to not get sucked in by the Park West Art Auctions, they are a con.
