Great Staff, Great Ship

Sail Date: April 22, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

From the moment we arrived at the dock we were welcomed, smiled at and treated like VIPS.  My mom was helped with her wheelchair by a friendly and attentive porter at the dock.  

On a maiden voyage there will be a few technical glitches and these were handled with grace and poise by the guest services staff.  They tried in every way to compensate for any small inconveniences, and we were more than satisfied by the efforts to resolve all issues.  

We got in every show we wanted to see, the waitstaff made us feel like Royalty and we loved our Steward.

So much to do, I would have to write a novel, just suffice to say, my daughter loved Puzzle Break and Flying Trapeze the best!

Destinations and Excursions
Paris excursion was wonderful, great tour guide, but needed much more free time there!

Day trip to Oxford or Isle of Wight on wish list for next time.

So much to do, bring the daily program.
Make dinner reservations online before you go, but don't stress about it if you need to change on ship, they work very hard to accommodate you.

For alone time, there are nice areas on deck five with outside seating.
