when we sailed everyone at our hotel who was also sailing said eat before and board late as possible since there is nothing to do when you board early. This is not a large party ship it is really like a old euro style of sailing . People sit around and listen to music and drink lots of drinking and they wear there finest clothes. They live for this. They talk about where they just went and were they are going next. I met a Saudi Prince a Baron and a few multi millionaires on that cruise. I really learned so much and in return also met some amazing friends. We bought our cruise from a charity event and I didn't realize until we got on the ship we paid only half of what one person would have paid and we had the suite on the front of the ship. o one treated us any differently and I'm sure everyone knew . We had a very relaxing cruise ,great spa and were treated like royality. Honestly.
