Review SummaryThis was our first cruise and we didn't know what to expect. Our room was great, all of the ships crew was wonderful, the food was very good. I was expecting more outside space and was a little closed in feeling the first couple of days.
We did have one problem. There was a film crew filming all week on the ship. This was very intrusive. At one point during a dinner at Chops the film crew (about 10 people) took over the dining room, tuned off the music, turned up the lights, ran cords everywhere, knocked over a bottle of wine. The entire mood of the evening was changed. We were about to leave and then were moved to a different table in the front dining area (we were at the best table in the back) the dinner was delicious, the staff at Chops was more than accomidating, but the evening was ruined. When leaving the resturant, we were told by the film crew to "walk quickly" because they were filming the actors walking out in a minute. Many instances like this took place all week long. If we had known we certainly would have booked a different week. We've saved 10 years for the trip and left our kids for the first time.
Ports of Call
Pros: The ship was beautiful, easy to get around, our room was great.
