Simply Amazing. It was my husband's 50-ish🤐 birthday and from the time we onboarded the ships crew was fantastic and courteous. We feasted on a delectable dinner and the awesome entertainment was the icing on the cake.

The whole experience was wonderful from the greeting by the Captain to the staff in general. The presentation of the different dishes was wonderfully done and spaced out appropriately. Very nice way to spend our 45th Anniversary.
