I cannot fault this trip – it was all it said it would be. Comfortable and well-appointed cabin. Appetising and plentiful food. Plenty of activities on board and trips off. Very capable and friendly crew, even though English was not usually first language. Spot on timings with everything making for relaxation. Wine with evening meal included and otherwise prices not silly. Wonderful window arrangements so good views throughout (the boat of another line we have been on had the restaurant on level with only portholes, so very dreary). Gratuities absolutely at discretion with no checklist or embarrassment. If they offered the itinerary we wanted another time we would trust this experience to book again with no hesitation. Interesting and friendly mix of passengers, mainly American, Australian and English. Only English-speaking for guests, crew and announcements. Never any ambiguity about arrangements. Free seating and personal dress code just what we want. Plenty of room on open deck so no "towels on chairs".
