Cheap transatlantic, worth the price

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Other

Very nice ship, well layed-out balcony cabin (9178)and seemed clean. Cabin air was very dry so left balcony door open at night to get some moisture.

Internet, which didn't work very well, is 75 cents a minute, $4 bottle of wine at Sam's is $27 and a glass of wine is $8+. There are drink offers available, all overpriced.

Over 1/2 the daily activities were fee only, many casino related. There are at least 4 fee only restaurants (some $40 per person), the usual art auction characters hawking dubious "collectibles" and the broadway type revue shows that are exceedingly bad with lip synching.

The comedians on board were excellent, 1 from the US, 1 from Wales and 1 from Ireland.

Food was passable, buffet on deck 14 was good altho every carved meat selection was extremely overcooked. They have everyone using hand sanitizer and then helping themselves to the buffets using filthy tongs -- strange.

Breads and pastry were not good, french bread tasted More stale and the morning croissants were harder than my head. Very poor pastry chef.

All in all, for a cheap cruise, not a bad deal, wouldn't rush back tho. Less

Rented a car and drove to Giverny to visit Monets Garden, worth the trip. Then drove along coast of Normandy and saw some of the beachs and resort towns.
