Fantastic trip. Just what I wanted. We got to see most of what was planned. The only things we didn't do were because the weather was bad and it would have put the passengers and crew in danger. The staff went above and beyond in giving us a wonderful experience. There were several obnoxious passengers on board the ship and they made the crew and other passengers lives difficult, complaining about everything, but otherwise brilliant. The food was great as was the accommodation. The trip was a credit to Oceanwide.
