The Only Way to Go!
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The English Pub lunches are not to be missed and the afternoon tea service is really worth experiencing although the same scones and teacakes are served up on deck 7 in the King's Court, it's not quite the same as being served with a quartet of musicians and white gloved waiters. Although the pool areas are spacious and lounge chairs are abundant we spent more time on our balcony than on deck. Somethig we noticed right away was how quiet this ship is. Never heard noise from hallways or other cabins and could hardly detect the sound of the engines. Two minor criticisms, the internet is very sloooow and I wished they had small teapots in the King's Court (as a tea drinker, I hate tea bags in a cup)However those are petty annoyances compared to the overall first class experience.

Cabin review: 8059
Great location, 5 cabins away from the foyer with elevators. One deck above King's Court ( you can pop down the stars for a cup of tea and back in 2 minutes) Same deck as the library. As state earlier, the obstructed view wasn't relly "obstructed" at all.
Not value for money
HKG/SIN - 7 days is too short ...
