Cabin: 215

All of the staff were very friendly and professional with smiling faces all the time. We got the vibe that they really wanted us to have an enjoyable trip and they were very caring and considerate. This was the 2nd cruise on this brand new ship which was very well designed, especially the bathroom. The food was excellent and the wait staff were top notice. Generous pours of complimentary wine with dinner.  Nico our cruise director was the best.   

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was spacious with everything we needed. Would have liked to have a separate sheet and blanket instead of a duvet. Also, a memory foam pillow would have been nice. But these did not detract at all from an overall high quality, wonderful cruise.
Children's Programs
no children were aboard this ship and this type cruise is not suitable for children
The piano player was excellent and the varied evening entertainment that we attended was good also.
Service and Staff
Nico the cruise director
