Try and not use the midship elevators whenever possible as there is no alternative stair case there, instead favor either the fore or aft staircase and elevators.

We liked our room location, near the back at the top of ship as the buffet dining rooms were one floor above, and gym one above that. Also we were near elevators to get to lower levels. No complains what so ever...

Be prepared to do alot of walking. The ship is huge but never seemed crowded.


Dec 16, 2015

Use the stairs whenever possible as elevators are small and scarce for a ship of this size.

Expect to use the stairs, and get to know the ship.

We recommend the dining room experience for breakfast and high tea. You are served like royalty.

We typically are excursion do it yourselfers and don't buy excursions, but we did in Istanbul because it was the only way to get into the palace since it was normally closed on the day we were there, but was open to the tour groups. We were glad we did and would recommend that approach to others.

The ship is a beauty, Not hassled by photographers. Request cushions at pool for lounges. Be patient at the elevators.

Get off early in st. Martin. Go get a room for the day at the Westin. You will have a nice room, polls and gorgeous beach.

The situation of the elevators and the fact that u have have to get to the seventh floor and walk to the other side of the ship got old quickly!!!!

Be sure to get a cabin near midship and don't expect much for the short day and long travel time to Stockholm. All the other port stops were terrific !

Order room service in the morning, nothing better than sitting on your balcony. Efficient service and quietier than the Horizon.

The English fish and chips served in the WheelHouse/SteakHouse on sea days was fantastic!

Try the movies under the stars it's a great way to watch and if it gets chilly cover up with one of their blankets.


Dec 07, 2014

Check out the rear balcony cabins, the end of the ship. They are larger and bigger balcony's.

Loved the specialty restaurants - tried both Sabatini's and the Crab Shack. Loved them both. Definitely recommend renting a cabana around adult pool. Totally relaxing and luxurious.

Elevator wait time can be slow at mid ship. Go to the theater early to avoid people walking over you.
