Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The cruise was excellent. The staff in terms of friendliness and attentiveness is second to none. The ship was immaculately clean. The ports were interesting (much better then the Caribbean) and the weather was in the sixties.

The ship itself was built without much thought or planning:

In the Beatle showroom there are oversized chairs for 25-30 with the other 170 people standing

The showroom seats 650 on a ship with over 4000 passengers.

The main lobby seating is totally inadequate for the events. Sit on floor or stand.

And, of course there is no bathrooms in the stateroom. There is a cubicle for washing, there is a cubicle for shower and there is a cubicle toilet.

     The food was good, better then average in the main dining rooms. The specialty menu's are to limited and needs to have some change or variation.

     The shows were very good; the Circus show was fabulous, Priscilla was excellent, as was  Burn the Floor.

Cabin / Stateroom
Room configuration is just stupid. Even the staff laughs about it. With the newer "mega" ships they have reinstated the concept of a bathroom.
Storage is good, and the room steward was wonderful
