For those that have cruised at the higher end of the market, this is not up there! However, at less than half the price of some companies, it is worth considering. This ship has a gym, spa and jacuzzi. Cabins are roomy and balcony ones only cost a bit more. It is a German company and 90% of guests were German so entertainment was directed towards them. Announcements were bi-lingual. All meals buffet style. Basic drinks included. All in all a god value experience.
