Super Service on a Beautiful Large Ship

Sail Date: October 28, 2007

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship was beautiful with comprehensive superb facilities and attentive staff.
For our personal taste, it was too large at 2,500 capacity with about 2,100
passengers embarked. In future we'll try to return to ships of about 1,000
passenger size, in which we feel more comforatble. Baltimore departure was
driving distance from northern Virginia, eliminating the need to fly. Entering
port area and embarking was flawless. Cruise highlight was the extremely
friendly staff that provided extraordinary service. One example was our cabin
steward, who unobtrusively had the room ready for our return at all times.
Another example was the dining staff, from the lead person who went out of his
way to improvre our table location to the wait- and bus-staff who catered to
every passenger whim. Meals were good, with many choices, inlcuding low-
calorie. Our shore hghlight was a world-famous high tea at a fabulous hotel in
Bermuda. The only negative was that ship size resulted in a 3-1/2 hour
disembarkation wait in spaces that were overly air-conditioned, followed by an
hour in traffic leaving the port area. We recommend the ship to cruisers who
desire and will use all the amenities, including gambling and the facilities
and programs for children.

Pros: 1. Baltimore departure port. 2. Extremely friendly staff provided extraordinary service.

Cons: Disembarkation wait too long.
