Beautiful ship, BUT...family veranda cabin, was disappointing. You must have five people to book this cabin. We are a family of 3 adults and 2 teens, ages 14 and 17, and we expected proper beds for all five people. The master had two beds, combined, or separated, as we expected. The 2nd bedroom had an upper and lower bunk bed, OK for children or teens, VERY small room, VERY small closet. The living area had a narrow, attached to the wall, sofa. There was no trundle, no sofabed bed of any kind. So, one adult had to sleep on the narrow sofa, smaller in width than a twin bed, and because it was attached to the wall, turning over without hitting one's elbow on the wall, was impossible. When a cabin is advertised to sleep five, the 5th person should have at least a sofa bed or pullout bed. After 3 nights of trying to sleep on the HARD sofa, the cabin attendent took the mattress off the lower bunk and put in on the floor, leaving the teen in the lower bunk unhappy about his new thin bunk style mattress, and the adult, now sleeping on the floor. There is no mirror in the master bedroom. The small addition of a mirror would make getting dressed a lot easier for those occupying the master. There was some noise from activity associated with port arrivals and departures,being at the very front of the ship, but it was only a minor distraction. Our expecttations for this cabin, was to have the 3rd adult in a twin bed in the 2nd bedroom and the teens on a sofabed or trundle in the living area, which we were unable to do. Next time we will book two adjoining cabins with pullout sofabeds, and get the added benefit of an extra bathroom.
Cuvee Dining: We had select dining. Beautiful room, chairs somewhat cumbersome, hard to slide in or out. Carlos and his team were great on the nights we could get him. Other nights, service was erratic. Formal nights, very slow, staff seemed overwhelmed. A waiter took wine glasses off of our table and put them on adjoining table and poured wine into them, a real no-no. Food was good overall, brand new menu being tested, shrimp scampi with pasta, way too spicy. Quality of food not as upscale as expected.
Dined in Qsine one night, fun for all, very different presentations and food selections. Recommend it!
Played bingo a couple of times. You get ship credit for winnings, not cash. Public bathrooms very spacious and beautifully decorated, attended most times, and spotless.
Overall, decorwise,a beautifully inspired ship from stem to stern. On such a port intensive itinery, it is difficult to actually have the time to explore and enjoy the ship's amenities.
Crew and staff very friendly, always greeting you.
