WE FELT THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH TIME IN THE DAY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL THE GREAT PROGRAM OFFERINGS. LOVED THE HUGE MOVIE SCREEN AND CHOICE OF MOVIES AVAILABLE.

THE ONLY PART OF THE CRUISE THAT NEEDS ATTENTION WAS THAT THE ROOM WAS A LITTLE TOO COOL. WE ASKED FOR THE TEMP. ADJUSTMENT TO BE CHECKED AND MAINTENANCE SAID IT WAS OK. HOWEVER WE THOUGHT IT WAS TOO COLD AND WE COULD NOT TURN IT OFF (TEMP).

Ship tip

Go for it and enjoy every little bit of it. Bring your own soap powder to wash your clothes with, if you don't like perfumed clothes. A small stapler would also come in handy to staple your suitcase labels on your suitcase prior to boarding.

hope for better weather, it rained most of the day which made it impossible to see the Apes or take the Gondola/Lift. No worries, there was a lot of shopping and meeting local people. Glassfactory. A visit to MARBLEARC IS WORTH YOUR WHILE. GOOD VARIETY OF clothing, MEN AND WOMAN LOVED THAT STORE. Architecture breath taking beautiful .
