This cruise is good for a beginner or someone, like me, who only had time for a short cruise. This is a teaching cruise for staff. So with that said, the service level reflects a learning curve. It was exactly what I expected. We were a group of 7 and 4 of the group were first time cruisers. The first time cruisers were delighted with the experience and are planning future cruises. Three of us, me included, are seasoned cruisers, were satisfied with the experience and are planning future longer cruises. The three of us just returned from a  12 night Britsh Isles Carnival cruise last September 2013. That cruise and service were outstanding!

Need to fix the bathroom door as it has sprung slightly from hinges. Reported it, but not sure from staff response any repair action will happen.
