Review summary

We were pleasantly replied with our first RC cruise and our first transatlantic cruise.  The food and overall service was good but not great.  We did enjoy very much our three dinners in the specialty dining rooms.  


We were surprised by the number of experienced cruisers, probably half had been on 20 plus cruises, some over 125.  We loved the trivia as there were 4-5 each day.  The entertainment was only so-so perhaps that was normal for a long trans-ocean cruise.
