We recently returned from our quick "long weekend" to celebrate two May birthdays and had a GREAT time. Each couple had a suite that was very comfortable and clean. The location of our rooms was close to what we called our "private" elevator!! If you didn't take the centrally located Large elevator, you took the smaller (holds 4 people) elevators throughout the ship. We thought they were quaint. :)
We found the food to be exceptional in the restaurants. We ate in the Crystal Restaurant the first night and the wait staff was knowledgeable and very pleasant. The Cove Restaurant was equally as good and we were treated to not ONE, but TWO Birthday cakes at the end of the meal. A real surprise and treat.
All the staff on the ship were such a pleasure and fun to interact with. We were honored and surprised to be selected to join Captain Jens Hoybye up on the Bridge as the ship was preparing to disembark the port for our journey home. That was a real thrill and only wish everyone who takes this pleasant trip would be so fortunate.
I would encourage anyone who wants to try cruising for the first time to take this trip!!
