First off Tripadvisor only gives the option of 5 circles or else I would have put up more....All I can say is I went off the dozens of great reviews this organization has received in order to make my decision and I'm so glad I did. The Captain and Crew were amazing, so helpful and friendly, it felt more like a cruise with friends than anything else.The food was amazing, in fact I'm still waiting for Pat to send some in the mail, she promised! The ship was wonderful as well, meticulously maintained and such a joy to be on. Met a lot of nice people and had a great time. Captain John's knowledge of the area and his talks were always a welcome part of the experience. The ports of call are varied depending upon conditions, but they were all fun and interesting and beautiful. I've never had a more relaxing vacation! If you are looking for a great time, whether it's a dinner cruise or one of the overnight excursions do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed.
