Excellent Holiday Cruise
All phases of the cruise were perfect. From Embarkation to disembarkation every event went smoothly. Enjoyed shopping at the Effy store and the Park West display. The sale in the Piazza was great for buying T-Shirts, souvenirs, and liquor. The absolutely top notch staff on the ship are in the Dining rooms. The bar service in the lounges meet all expectations. Ports were fabulous especially for shoppers looking for bargains. Happy Hour every day in the Crooners lounge was a great way to cruise away the day. The International Cafe always had fresh food available all hours of the day. The staff interacts with the customers which makes everyone feel at home.
Great staff, great food, overall great time. We requested foam pillows due to our allergies and the room steward changed them out right away. We still suffered allergy problems, possibly from feathered comforters or all the fabric in the room that collects dust particles. Hopefully, some day cruise lines will make the rooms allergy friendly for sufferers. We sail again in November on Princess. The watch store manager gave me a great deal on a new watch.
Lots of entertainment on board
Very pleased with this cruise. The crew was fantastic. Service was very good. Ports are excellent for shopping. I will be doing this cruise again next year.
