Great sites to see in each port, whether with RCL excursions or private tours.  Deck 8 the uppermost deck is subject to very loud noises overnight as the cleaning crews roll very heavy carts above your head all night long.  Some nights we could sleep through, most nights we could not. Size of junior suite was wonderful as was balcony.  Room service great for morning coffee.  Entertainment was ok, not great. Overall a very standard cruise experience well done, but not on deck 8.

Cabin / Stateroom

Great cabin, bad location. Good space, nice balcony, great storage for two weeks of stuff. We travelled with another couple and we had adjoining rooms with a door connection which was great! Deck 8 is top living quarters and overhead noise all night from cleaning and rolling carts was distracting at best and truly aggravating at worst. Told staff and they couldn't/wouldn't fix the problem

Ship Tip

Ship's Captain was very present and involved in our cruise. His twice daily announcements were great and helpful. Glad Capt Marek was our skipper.
