APPROPRIATENESS FOR:

Strengths: True All inclusive. Outstanding service. Yacht-like ambiance. Weaknesses: Entertainment, Daytime activities, exercise facilities.

Agents Observations: This ship has class. Open seating offers flexibility. Relaxed atmosphere. Everyone was friendly. Exclusive atmosphere. Very quiet - might be boring. Rides very smoothly, especially for a small ship. Most outstanding service level in the industry. Staff is friendly and gracious, but not too familiar. Superb food. The galley buffet lunch was a special treat. Spacious cabins. Recommend suites on Decks 4 or 5, mid-ship. Do not book cabin #117, which is directly above the door that allows the harbor master to get on board. It was very noisy, especially early morning. Standard Type A suite is much nicer than most staterooms on any other ship. Wonderful health spa. The fold-out marina aft is outstanding. Entertainment needs more variety. Excellent ports-of-call. Loved the movies under the stars.
