A great vacation

Sail Date: April 28, 2006

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Great crew, super activities, food terrific, loved our cabin ( with a balcony)... first time invited to the Concierge Club..... wonderful touch.... That truly says we welcome your business... ( open bar with snacks from 4:45pm to 8:00pm).... bartender Aileen above par.... Passengers were very well traveled and quite interesting... We were also blessed with super weather....Sorry that it had to end!

Pros: The service.... all staff had super attitudes and we felt that they TRULY CARED about you and wanted you to have a great vacation.

Cons: The excursions ..... getting on and off.... due to the security machine.... If they had two.... so much faster.. Sure it's the COST!!!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Had cabin 9226.... QUIET.... never heard a thing ...even had extra storage space.... room steward super.... great size.... did find the bed HARD (true for me on many ships..haave a tricky back).. had a refrigerator, safe, TV ( on a swivel).. Decor lovely.....
Service and Staff
All of the staff went above and beyond... I will do my very best for you Madam.... It's my pleasure... Can't think of a thing that they didn't do....
Could have had some NOODLES for the water aerobics... or water weights... Actually earned 48 SHIP SHAPE DOLLARS.... and had lots of fun while doing so....
Funchal, Madeira
Taking the ride down in the basket which is steered by two men is a BLAST.... Truly LOVED it..... The botanical gardens to me are a must see.... Loved the Cable Car also...
Don't Miss: The ride in the basket steered by the two men!
Lisbon, Portugal
Not easy to access bathrooms..... could be a PROBLEM.... were there on a Sunday so a lot of things were closed...
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France
DId the trip to Monarco/Monte Carlo..... so glad that we did.... Exceptional....
Don't Miss: Monarco/ Monte Carlo....
