A wonderful cruise vacation!

Sail Date: April 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall, the ship was decorated with class (not flashy), the service and food were fantastic. The schedule of events, lectures and classes were wonderful and all the staff was polite, friendly, and had customer service in mind. It was easy to find your way around (a mid size ship with 2100 passengers) . The bed was the most comfortable of the 4 cruises we have previously been on, and the cabin was a nice size. We never found ourselves bored, even with a seven day Atlantic crossing.
We never took any excursions from the ship (slightly expensive) and since we were close to the cities at the ports, we didn't feel we needed to.

Pros: The ship, the service, and the food

Cons: Loudness of the shows
