Going to Normandy and visiting the cemetery was awe inspiring.

Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

We chose this cruise to visit places we had never been. We spent extra time in Copenhagen and enjoyed our visit there. The ship was very nice, clean and well maintained and all of the crew were gracious and helpful. The restaurants on the ship were good but the food in the buffet was so good that we chose to eat in the buffet most of the time.

The excursions are not worth the money or effort. We spent far too much time riding buses to get to and from the excursions we chose and not nearly enough time visiting each site. The Bahama stop was a total waste of time. By the time you reached the island by tender, it was just about time to get back in line to get a tender back to the ship. We had about 1 hour on the island and then spent a good hour waiting in line to get back to the ship.

Miami was worse, we were rushed through our excursion to get back to the terminal over an hour early and sat for 2 hours because Customs and Immigration would not let anyone get on the ship until every passenger was off the ship. We did get some free time in Ireland which we used to visit a beautiful cathedral and the Titanic museum.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

Our cabin was comfortable and we felt like we had plenty of room. We didn’t plan to spend a lot of time in our cabin so it suited our needs perfectly.

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

We arrived 2 days early so that we could explore Copenhagen. We walked around the city and spent time in Tivoli Gardens.

Cobh (Cork)

Another rushed bus ride only to get back to the ship over an hour early.

Great Stirrup Cay

Total chaos!! Waited forever to get to the island and had to turn right around to get in extremely long line to get back to ship. Not worth the effort at all.

Miami

Another rushed bus ride. Got back to the terminal over an hour early only to sit for hours before we could get onboard the ship. Had time to eat lunch at a marina restaurant but the tour guide rushed everyone to return to the bus.
