Review summary

Great food (in the buffet); the main dining room:not so much. Wonderful entertainment, lectures, etc. Comfortable cabin albeit a bit small. especially the balcony. Biggest disappointment: not being able to dock in LaHavre due to weather so missed out on seeing the Normandy beaches. This was the focus four trip.

Plenty of cardio equipment but a bit short on weight machines. Located in back of the ship which was somewhat unusual.
