Review summary

I Loved the Seaview Ship!!! It was the best cruise I've ever been on. Completely Modern and brand new in June. This ship had a lot of people on it - 5,000 yet, there was always room. The main issue I had with the Large Pool and Nightly Entertainment was the Sound Volume. It was extremely loud. The Dinners were good in the dining room, but not great. The food in the Market Place and Buffet was wonderful. Usually at night or early morning, I like to watch a little TV. There was only 2 English Channels of News. There were no sitcom or TV shows in English. There were all other languages. Storage in the room was limited. On a different cruise line, they were able to put storage over the bed. Since people were getting on and off the ship the whole week at different ports, I believe they rearrange rooms. This was not a big problem, but 2 nights I hear lots of banging around in the middle of the night. I think they were rearranging the furniture.

Embarkation was a little confusing. We didn't know exactly where we were going. There were very long lines. Not much was communicated in English

The Drink Package was great, but it was very confusing. Certain Drinks were only available at the BAR. Wine and Beer were offered only in the dining room. Mixed Drinks, they had to go retrieve from the Bar. After a couple of days, we understood.

Loved the pool, but it was extremely crowded. The Jungle area was too loud. We preferred the remote pool on the back deck.
