Review summary

We cruised from Rome to Amsterdam, the Norway back to Amsterdam n loved this new HA vessel.

Our balcony stateroom was very comfortable and well planned...plenty of nooks n crannies for storage and an excellent walkin shower.

Food everywhere was a very high standard as was the waiting staff, despite losing my wine bottle twice in 21 days. Dining room good menu choices and promptly served. So good we did not venture into the paid venues.

Shore  excursions far too expensive n one was a truly unsatisfactory experience. You can do better directly from the pier or local terminal for half the price.

Most  entertainment very enjoyable, but forget the piano duo in the Billboard lounge.Horrible, tuneless banging on 2 grand pianos, slaughtering good songs. LIncoln Centre Stage and World theatre much better.Ocean Bar pianist excellent too.

my internet experience was quite good but keep a check of your minutes charged.....not cheap, but reasonable rates if you take a package.

The finishes and style on this ship are high quality and sophisticated.

good lift service, except embarkation and disembarkation days.

Gratuities ( now referred to as Hotel Service Charge ) are a significant addition to your cruise cost, but they ARE NEGOTIABLE, DELETEABLE or can be CAPPED.....reluctantly by Guest Services Staff.

check you onboard account for accuracy is best advice.


Very few complaints from these guests, a comfortable and enjoyable experience
