The ship is really nice. Food was good. Service was very good. We really enjoyed the smaller ship with fewer guests. No crowds, no lines and no drunk rowdy party animals made for a very enjoyable and relaxing on-board experience. The cabin butler was exceptional. Though food was good, you are limited on your dining experience unless you "make reservations" for other restaurants and least 6+ moths in advance. Out of nine nights we were able to get reservations (other than main dining area) for only one night - and we tried 4 months prior to the cruise. Not sure about entertainment, the main show didn't start until 10:00 p.m. By then we were exhausted and went to be to try and sleep (see cabin review). Our daily shore excursions were very good! Some of the best we have ever had. Also, don't let the crews line book your airline tickets. Or, if you do, double check all flight times and connections, then make changes. We had to actually run through two airports in order to make connecting flights. The gate was about to close when we reached one and if the other flight had not been delayed, we would have missed that flight. We like the luxury cruise experience and will probably look at the other luxury lines going forward.

Cabin Review

Vista Suite
Cabin VI 405
They should not even book this room for guests. The cabin itself was nice, roomy and well taken care of. The issue is the location in the ship. There was a large amount of noise coming from the working area of the ship, the cabin is in the very front. These loud noises and vibrations happened all through the day and night. It was obvious the noise was from some of the mechanical operations of the ship as well as crew members coming & going and banging through doors along the way. Even the anchor being lowered early in the morning takes longer and is louder than most would think. Our toilet began leaking about halfway through the cruise, leaving large puddles of water on the floor. That was repaired, but then it stopped working altogether. After that, it was on again - off again to have a working toilet.
