Good, short cruise

Sail Date: December 06, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Boarding was somewhat chaotic, apparently due to a late arrival and we did not get our luggage until after dinner. The maitre 'd very obligingly accepted our request for a special table. The "junior suite" was nicely set up and a regular balcony cabin should be of this comfortable size. Excellent cabin steward and room service. Very good food, although the dining room carpet wasn't the cleanest, and our serving team was responsible for more tables than on past cruises. The luncheon buffet was always excellent. We discovered a superb pianist named Raul who played in the Windjammer Lounge and should be a featured concert pianist. We had been to all of the ports on previous cruises, so stayed on the ship the whole time and thoroughly enjoyed having it "to ourselves".

Ship Quality
Despite a recent overhaul, seemed slightly worn
Food and Dining
Excellent meals; almost too large at times
Service and Staff
Met some super staff members; bars, buffet, etc.
Stage shows were good; the pianist in the Windjammer Bar is superb!
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Comfortable and well maintained, although we did not have a lock or handle on the balcony door.
