Review summary

Loved the dining room and specialty restaurants.  The café for breakfast and lunch was barely controlled chaos with some good choices but little variety from day to day. Spa personnel/services great.  Typical issue with pool-side chairs/lounges often empty but "saved" all day with books and towels.  Getting off/on at ports easy and efficient.  The décor of the public spaces was very nice.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cramped (we were spoiled with Seabourn with walk-in closet, make-up table with hairdryer socket outside the bathroom. Heating/air were fine. Bathroom designer should get award for most ridiculous design ever. You have to be a contortionist to turn on the bathtub faucet. If you are not anexoric, you can barely get into the shower. Waste basket under sink behind towel rack.
