Sail Date: Jul 2015
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

First the good news. The chefs did a great job with the three meals each day. I avoid fish on cruises as I have yet to find any that is and this cruise was no different. Desserts were always superb. The cabin was crowded but tolerable.

The bad news. The oldest waiter in the dining room and lounge refused to serve me a beverage by ignoring me on two accessions. When I complained I got a gruff response from the manager and bar tender. I had good and friendly service from all of the staff otherwise. This kind of attitude should never happen on a luxury cruise and should be corrected immediately.

On disembarkation day we left our four pieces of luggage in the hall as instructed. An hour later our luggage was still in the hall even though all other luggage was taken away from our fellow passengers. My travel companion got concerned and carried our luggage to the lobby. We found it strange and suspicious that our luggage was taken.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Cabin 1

Space was very tight. My big complaint was that the decorator pillow took up room in the cabin when the bed was made for the night. Every inch counts and I'd like to see frivolous items left out of the decor.

Though the bathroom is small I had no problem with the space

The French balcony is no more than a railing to keep one from falling out of the window, so don't expect anything more. The floor above had a table with two chairs and I can't imagine how one would possibly enjoy the limited space there.
