Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Fantastica Balcony Stateroom

Got on the ship, bit slow boarding. They have stretched the ship and fitted another 200 cabins. We had a new cabin (9105). Very tidy, but a bit small. Adequate, but not as good as the last time on this ship.

Had requested fixed early dining on a large table to meet other people. Because we had a balcony cabin, we were allocated to the “best ??” dining room on any time dining. Try as I could, I wasn’t able to change it. We ended up on a table for 4, sat by ourselves most of the time, not what we had wanted, WE WANTED TO MEET OTHER PEOPLE

The layout of the second dining room is terrible. People walking through whilst others are dining. Who planned the ships extension, a bet it wasn’t a marine architect or someone who went cruising.
