Beautiful ship

Sail Date: February 21, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were impressed with the ship... really beautiful.  Technical innovation is probably why I wanted to try it. l loved the I-Fly and North Star.  The crew was wonderful. We purchased our cruise without full understanding of the "Dynamic Dining" concept and were too late to get "Dynamic Dining Classic" (which more closely resembles the conventional 6:00/8:00 p.m. seating with same table and staff).  We had to choose and reserve each restaurant and dinner time.  For us that lost much of the charm of sailing...few decisions to make; getting to know table mates and the same wait staff for each meal.  Knowing that you had a show to attend each night was also something lost for this cruise concept,  All but a couple of shows had to be reserved ahead of time or you could not attend. So... good ship; good crew; but please do not extend the "dynamic" concept to other ships.

I must add that this cruise cut the 12 day trip short by 2 days because of forecast weather.

Lil was superb. Took excellent care of us and our room. Attended to every need, especially after we succumbed to a day of the norovirus. Helped especially with our disembarkation process.
