A unique experience

Sail Date: April 03, 2006

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

It was nice to be on a vacation where to get in contact with the outside world was difficult enough, that it wasn't worth it. The service from the stateroom steward, dining room and everyone in general was excellent. The day at sea was dissapointing since the interesting activities were all for a fee.

For all the positive, the negative aspects were the tacky ship decor and having to pay for almost anything, including pop sodas. The ships photographers seemed more amateurish than professional, the dinner pictures had no attention to detail (ie: take pictures with all the dirty dishes, glasses and bottles in the way)

Pros: The isolation from work and full time pampering

Cons: The ship's decoration and having to pay a fee for almost anything (starting w/ pop soda)
