Lovely looking ship and cabin was clean and functional. Cabin staff great (Boyana). The excursions we chose were good and reasonably priced. However, the food was a major let down. We tried the Waiter Service Dining Room - ‘poached eggs’ consisted of one yolk that was just about warm, served with two pieces of bacon. The Buffet Breakfast was ok - the Buffet Lunch was poor - we actually could not find anything we wanted to eat on three days - and ended up with cheese and crackers. The Italian in the evenings was the best choice and although we knew the menu completely by the end of the week. Afternoon Tea was the best meal of the day. We ate once only, thank goodness, at Kore La, Speciality Restaurant - never had fusion food like that and will never do again hopefully. Total waste of money. The pool area was ok but noisy, however the Glass House was an oasis of calm. Would not go on this ship again.

Simply Average

Cabin Review

Cabin 3524
Nice cabin. Good storage. Little coffee table would have been useful.
No ventilation at all in the bathroom and the actual vent had ‘grey sponge’ in it, not sure why?
