"high point of our trip"
I expected this to be a very good event, but it became a high point of our trip. Not to take away from the beautiful beaches or the great sights but this cruise had everything. Lots of people but all moved on board quickly. We sat with a group of 4 and had great conversations. The food was very good, the wine inexpensive and the servers very attentive. The sights were spectacular and it was all rounded out with a dance band in a large lounge playing popular music.
Tip: Don't be disappointed. To be sure you get on board buy your tickets in advance from vacations made easy.
