Sail Date: April 2013
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Rotterdam
I booked a balcony cabin at the aft of the ship.

I had a ship visit in BRISTOL so booked a klm flight to AMSTERDAM then a train to ROTTERDAM the trains were so packed i had to waited ages to get on the nest one.

I stayed at the MARITIME HOTEL overlooking the PORT. I have used this hotel before and always had a lovely cooked breakfast but this time hardly anything cook and all the meat and cheese had gone. Plus the wi fi was awful my laptop could not even pick it up.

I walked over to the port and joined the queue got a color card but was not told i had to check in 1st so when my card was called handed it in and then had to to check in and then had to explain i had no card.

BALCONY cabin aft DECK 14. Has to ask if the cabins were ready and then find it myself. No sign of the steward. No ashtray and no ice i called for these and hours later nothing if i had not seen the steward later i would have got More neither! the mini bar was locked and was not going to be opened. the bathroom was ok apart from no proper soap.

Market cafe cafe was full up so had to go outside to sit and the revolving door kept stopping. No trays or any mention of washing your hands.
DINNER i had in the CIRQUE DREAM AND DINNER only 1 food choice and the wine was too pricey.

Only did the CIRQUE DREAMS JUNGLE FANTASY which was worth every penny of the $29.99 sadly no pictures or video allowed. i wanted to see "RICK OF AGES!" but this had changed to "ROCK OF AGES" and the show was full. i much prefer a dinner and walk in show.

A good location in the restaurant names cabins go into their machine but no talk from the captain then it was over.

Very poor selection

A great idea but much too small

Sure small ships have a big one but only 2 lanes???

Very quick had to take own luggage off and no shuttle to the station.

A great idea paying $250 towards a deposit on another cruise and $100 off your bill but no interest i9n booking a cruise and no brochures at all!!

better than the one on the EPIC 2 years ago which was 3 hours waiting to get onboard and 1 engine failing. But i think the ship is too big and does not have some things smaller ships have. Less
