Review summary

All in all, we have no big complaints. The staff was very good and helpful, and the size of the ship was good in that you never felt overwhelmed with crowds. We have two minor quibbles compared to other cruises we have been on: 1) the food in the "complimentary" venues was OK, but way too much similarity every day, not enough variation, which after seven days became a little boring. We did have a very good meal in Le Bistro, but when you pay nearly $100 for a meal like that, you can do that at home without spending $4,000 in transportation to get to dinner. The other concern was the entertainment, which seemed to rely way too much on comedy acts and magic. Even on smaller boats we have become used to Broadway revues or at least a lot of music every night.

Very nice and roomy and our steward was great with a different towel fold every night.

Ship tip

Do the easy walk-off for disembarking. We left the boat at 8 am and were at home in LA by 9 am. Fabulous.
