We picked this cruise because it was close to home and cheaper than doing a vacation with hotel, etc. The staff was wonderful. Our cabin steward, Melinda was so sweet and our waiter in the MDR, Oscar plus his assistant Valentin were very attentive and remembered our names and preferences.

We had an Inside cabin on deck 6. The room was as expected, but the shower was larger than normal.

Now the food - the first night I ordered the Chicken El Greco and took a bite and spit it out - it was like rubber, The next night I ordered the Prime Rib and the only way it had any flavor was because I got some horse radish. We ate breakfast and lunch in the Paris Restaurant Buffet and still did not find a lot that we were happy with. The dinners the other nights were nothing to write home about. I stuck mostly with salads.

Regular cabin. Plenty of storage space. The two robes was a nice touch.
