Relaxing, mundane cruise on nice ship

Sail Date: November 29, 2015

Reviewed: 10 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Very nice cruise, lovely ship, but you'd better be looking to just relax, be cause the entertainment was quite sparse. Very little opportunity to dance and the customer base did not seem to be big socializers.

Food was good but very redundant and uninspired with the exception of the Thai cuisine,

Employees were great, cruise director was pretty much out of sight, nice library with a unhappy librarian. Cabins were very nice and had the largest closet space of any we'd seen on other lines. Did not like the swing-out balcony door.

Contrary to what we expected, guests did not really go out of their way to dress on Gala nights.

Cabin / Stateroom
Great location. We sensed a lot of vibration towards the stern of the ship when we were eating.
