Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Embarkations was out of control - we stood for 3 hours to board the ship.  They could have served coffee and been a little more honest about what was going on.

Too many priority boarders, of which we were none.

Wait staffs were the best part.........well trained, friendly and fun to be around both in DaVinci Dining Room and in Sabatini's.

We loved our suite..................very relaxing.  Too bad the weather was so cold that we could not sit out on our deck and enjoy it, but twice.  Always wet, too.  Our cabin steward was great.

Purser's office was no help anytime we needed them.  No notice ahead of things going on.  We would hear about it the day of or not at all.

Just does not compare to Holland America.

Understand it is going in for updating, which it needs.
Saw mini-suites and that is a nice option
