Embarkation was quick and at 11:30 Am we were on board eating lunch at the cafe on five.Our departure was delayed several times because of an annual exchange of lifeboats but the delays were not properly conveyed. Our cruise critic " Meet and Greet" did not take place as planned. However the front desk manager Pearline insisted on hosting a party unfortunately not many members received their invitation.It was a nice try, though. Our room was a large handicap equipped room with a large bathroom. Our steward was nice but service was spotty ( no toilet paper or kleenex replenished).
Dining in the MDR was wonderful. Erlan made sure that we got our table for 2 every night. We had different waiters many nights and some were better than others. Escargots, lobster and creme brulee really spoiled us. We ate at the buffet ( sushi) and aqua spa many times for breakfast and lunch and it was always good. The pool area was often littered with dishes and cups. Towels were also not picked up. Lounges were reserved for 4 hours at one time and when I called the pool butler, he did nothing about it. Also the time change was not handled properly and that day there was a lot of confusion. The entertainment was good and there was something for everybody.
We requested to be part of a group of 250 to walk off the ship at 7:15 AM but based on the area there were more people there and nobody checked. Customs was very quick and we were in our car by 8 AM.
