Staff could not have been more helpful and the service was fantastic. The food was perfect and I felt so looked after with my meat alternatives to the seafood dishes. 5* quality. Well organised itinerary and all activities were fantastic

There was a cockroach in our senior suite which wasn’t nice but probably no fault of signature.

The service on the cruise was outstanding. All crew members went out of their way to make the experience very enjoyable. Our rooms were very nice. We all loved the bathrooms. The ship was perfect for us.

The food on the cruise was good, but was on bland side and more pedestrian than we might have liked. I know this was probably to try to please standard tourists, but would have been nice to have food to order and more customized.
