Six of us choise this cruise because of the European ports and the fact that the ship was very new. Very pleased with everything from the food to the entertainment to the cabin. We always ate in the MDR. I was very pleased with my choices. Some of my husbands meat choices were a little to rare for his liking. He could of mentioned it to them, but didn't .We also enjoyed the salad bar in the Lido Deck. We attended most shows in the World Stage Center. The singers and dancers were some of the best we have ever seen. Absolutely loved the BBC Planet Earth show with the orchestra. It's a can't miss with their stage design. We also enjoyed the comedian and magician, although I have seen better magicians. I was a little disappointed in the billboard onboard. I think it would be a better show had they had a male and a female perform vs. two males. We loved our cabin. We originally booked a guaranteed 8th floor or higher inside cabin. We ended up with a Vista Suite, midship for no extra cost. Only suggestion I can say here, is we booked so early & I kept monitoring prices. As prices decreased, they bumped us up.The ship may have not been sold out? Our embarkation & disembarkation went very smooth. While we boarded the ship around 12:30pm, our luggage wasn't to our room til 6PM.

Excellent Ship & Interesting Ports

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VS 5127
Excellent cabin, but on the smaller side. We loved the shower and the lit dressing table in the room. My husband was able to shower, while I could get ready in the room. They also provided a magnifying hand mirror. Our balcony was average size with plexi glass. It had room for 2 chairs, a small table and foot stool.
