Service and Staff

Stewart was attentive and helpful. Had no problem bring in lounge chair for balcony. Kept room very clean.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
European design suggest cubbards and small living area. Plenty of cubabbard and closet space. Useful living area was good for us because we had M3 size cabin(family suite). Wouldn't recommend anything less, unless you do nothing but sleep and wash up in your cabin.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Clean, large tv, short bed, two person shower for adult fun.

Ship tip

Schedule all your excursions, dinning and shows before you board or as soon as you board. Have them remove all items from fridge and room that you don't plan on drinking for more space. Tip your Stewart on first day. If you can afford Haven, take advantage of it. Balcony is only way to go.

Disembarkation

Take your own bags. Eat breakfast at 8:30 am. Relax on sunny sode of cafe or outside until last minute, then get a porter when you get outside. Bypass long line with porters. $5-$10 tip.
