The cruise started off on the wrong foot. There were delayed passengers due to the weather in Dallas, and while they arrived before 9PM, the ship could not leave because the Houston Port Athority closed the ship channel. The cruise finally left the next day and was late getting into Ft Lauderdale, although we did go at top speed, and made up some time.

The trans-Atlantic portion was sooth and we arrived in Liverpool on time. The weather turned bad the next day and we had to miss Holyhead ( a tender port ), This allowed the ship to get to Hamburg the evening before the schedule. This was great because we got to see the city at night.

The next portion of the cruise was around the British Isles. It was a new port almost every day. Most of the ports were new to us and very enjoyable,


We would do this cruise again in the same cabin.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin P323 was interior mid-ship, and lower deck. If there were any rough seas, we did not feel them, The cabin backs up to the art gallery and there were noises and bumps associated with the paintings. This mostly occurred before 10 PM. Being on deck 5 there are some noises due to the movement of stores on deck 4, but they were tolerable. The atrium and the mid-ship restaurants are easy access, and due to the cabin location there was minimal hallway traffic.

If you have trouble walking, the mid-ship dining rooms are perfect.
