Review summary

We like the itinerary. The IT person was helpful in getting my onboard wifi minutes. 

We love the French Specialty Restaurant with good food and great services. The Shehannon Restaurant has a good menu for comfort food. 

 

The desserts are fair at best at all the restaurants. The Brazilian Specialty Restaurant has the worst desserts. Selection was poor and dessert we chose was

poor. 

 

The cooking demonstrations need need to improve. Not impressive at all. 

Camera/photo department provides good services and Mr Kumar is friendly and helpful. 

 

Staff at the the reception desk needs more training. They are helpful but give out wrong info at times. I have to ask two or more people to make sure I got the right info.

Great services at the French Specialty Restaurant. Fair services at the Grand Pacific Restaurant.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Like the final show. Love the acrobat couple. They are the best. The ship's dancing group did a good job too. But they should stop shining bright objects at the audience. They hurt my eyes and I have to close my eyes. What good is it to watch the group dance with my eyes closed ?

Mr Kumar at the Photo Shop

Cabin / Stateroom

Good. Cabin Stewart did a good job cleaning. But I missed the nightly chocolates on my bed 7 out of 8 nights. She said they ran out. I have never had a cruise company e.g. Princess, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Celebrity run out of bedtime chocolates.

Ship tip

Do not miss the Rueben sandwich at the Shahanon Restaurant.

Ports of call

Southampton (London), England

If you are on a back to back cruise, visit IKEA which is a short walk from the pier. IKEA has free wifi and lots to see. I found some goods that I do not see in the US IKEA. It is also linked to a big shopping center if you have time to kill.
