Just about everything went smooth as silk on this cruise - embarkation was a breeze, the staff was very good at updating the passengers about goings on in port - for instance, letting us know that the Grand Bazaar was closed on Sundays so we could adjust our plans.
I thought that Murano was a fantastic venue and the opportunity to cook in the galley and have lunch with the Executive Chef was better than any chef's table I have attended. The Hot Glass show was far superior than the glass demos in Murano. The Italian Steakhouse was tremendous, but we did not eat at Silk Harvest as the 35$ charge seemed excessive for Asian food I often prepare at home.
The only thing that was disappointing was that at Aqua level one of the benefits listed was that we were to have a spa concierge. This person never contacted us, and so we were not reminded of what those benefits were - although we were too busy to full take advantage.
The ship itself was so beautiful and the lawn was actually a really nice touch.
Everything was so good - it seemed that they even arranged perfect weather for us. Cannot say enough about this voyage. Was one of the best cruises we have ever been on.
