The cruise is cheep, 20€ when we went there, but the fact that you sit like cattle in their brand new boat is pretty awful. We took an interest in it because it was a big, safe ship to cruise around, but the experience is...More

The expectations were minimal, but the trip proved beautiful. We stayed in the children's area, the air-conditioned and we did not go upstairs, the area where the world was entertaining (not for dancing we climbed the ship). Note 10 for ship's personnel!
