You can’t possibly go wrong with the Journey’s destination-intensive itineraries accompanied by some sumptuous food on-board, warmed by the smiles of the crew. You can leave your tux and gowns at home, find a spot on the ship and have your time amidst some picturesque landscapes of Europe.
This isn’t just a cruise ship, it’s a cruising experience, thanks to the friendly staff and the unwavering commitment to destination cruising. This feels like home since it doesn’t take too much time for one to gel with 700 odd passengers spanned across the five decks. All this falls in line with the destinations this ship cruises to and the longer stay at the ports ( at least one overnight in each sailing) & an AzAmazing Evening & White Night Party on every cruise , making it feature high up on the cruisers’ go-to list.
The entertainment options on-board are limited, such as the small casino and the hit-or-miss theater offerings. This ship is more for some serene and sublime cruises with trotting around some exotic destinations.
It’s a yes yes, if you want to enjoy a mature, peaceful getaway and are looking for a more exclusive, non-intrusive cruising experience wherein you can spend more time at the ports.
