Overall it was a wonderful cruise with nice people onboard. The ports were great, the service was wonderful. Having your own butler.......well it doesn't get any better. When you go on a luxury cruise as a single gal, your not sure what to think. But we had a wonderful time and had a pretty good time. BUT do not take the air package. They put you on the worst flight, worst times etc. It's better to pay for your own flight and stay a day prior to your cruise. Give yourself enough time before and after a cruise. Also a warning. Don't forget your passport when you leave the ship. They don't announce it and you may just try to get back home without it!

PS- they keep the ship way too cold. Make sure you bring jackets along.

Food was great, service was good.

Our room was great. They offer a walk in closet which is wonderful. The bathroom has two sinks, a separate bathtub and shower. The lotions they use are the best! The tv's need to be updated including the movies and how many stations they have available.

The activities leave alot to be desired. They are not considered "luxury". The shows seem mediocre and need to bring better entertainment to an upscale luxury cruise line!

The flights were horrible. The cruise was great. The people were friendly and nice. The staff was helpful and kind. The food was good. They do keep the ship way to cold!!! I rate this cruise a 8.5 out of 10.
If you want to travel in style in an all inclusive way, this is the cruise I'd recommend. The ship is small enough to cater to your whims. I really liked that you pay one price and just about everything is included. (alcohol, etc)
