Review Summary

After taking 22 cruises with different lines over the years, I feel I can honestly rate this cruise as a delight!  Our cabin service with Jenin (cabin 7586) was excellent as was our nightly dinner service with Parnab and Lee Ann (table 218).  Jenin spoke with us daily about our needs and was quick to learn our schedule.  He made sure we had ice twice a day and was always responsive if we had a question.  Parnab was, by far, the best waiter we have ever had.  He was friendly, attentive, conversive but appropriate in his joking and taking with us.  We had a party of 8 friends at this table and knew our habits and needs after the first day.  He brought us extra dinner plates to try and extra desserts which we all consumed.  He was appropriately rapid with his taking our orders and equally fast to deliver each section of our meal.  We all liked Parnab and his methods.  Lee Ann was helpful also.  She engaged us in conversation and was helpful in making us feel welcome.

The ship was accommodating as it was not too large but easy to learn.The shows were great.  We attended all of them.  The orchestra was excellent as were the singers and dancers.  Ricky, the cruise director, was especially enjoyable.  He was energetic, funny, sensitive and helpful with his manner.  He is probably the best cruise director we have ever had.  Andre, the activities director was also enjoyable.  Their cruise morning show was a hoot.  I looked at it daily to check out what they had to say.  The activities we enjoyed the most were the trivia and we took part in all of these sessions.  The food was excellent on this ship.  Whether in the lido or in the dining room, we enjoyed the offerings.  Wait staff were always available on the lido deck to direct us, help us, or give suggestions. In all, we loved this cruise--the ports were good and we enjoyed the excursions that we took.
