Generally speaking, my impressions of the cruise are positive. Every place we went was new to us. And being taken care of for 21 days is a pleasant indulgence, if a little too much food and drink.
Typically we would get back to the ship quite early for a 4:30 departure. We eventually decided on a fixed dinner hour at 8 pm. That gave us a lot of time for pre-dinner activity.

We went to the main stage a few times. The music there was generally too sensational and too loud even if the dancers and musicians were quite good. All the players had click tracks. There were two quite good sets of lectures at the main stage, two on astronomy and a series by BBC wildlife photographers and sound-recorders.
