What a Way to Celebrate Turning 50!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
We splurged on a "Zodiac Suite" and it was worth every penny - especially the luxury bath. These suites were recognized by Cruise Critic as Best Suites and we agree. The services of the butler and the concierge were terrific and we enjoyed the VIP treatments, especially the special restaurant for breakfast and lunch and the premium seats for shows.
Staff were personable, efficient and attentive. The boat is a bit older (although recently refurbished) and a bit smaller than the newer ships. We found it just right. The decor is a bit more elegant than on some ships, with beautiful Asian styling. More
We enjoyed the freestyle dining and ate most meals in the specialty restaurants. The upcharges can add up, but we found the increase in quality and service worth it, although the meals we had in the main dining rooms (no charge) were also very good.
We enjoyed the trip from start to finish and especially appreciated sailing into our home port of Boston. Less

Spectacular bathroom, comfy bed, small balcony, limited storage space. Concierge and butler service were great. Loved the espresso machine in the room!Read All Penthouse with Large Balcony (SF) Reviews >>
