The Good ---- Ship just the right size we thought , Spacious lots to do , Shows mostly very good , (We had been on the sister ship "Brilliance of the Seas ) D1 Balcony Cabin fairly good ,Stateroom Attendant the best we have ever had,majority of staff very good, but one young lady in Reception, food fair/good ,better than P&O we thought.

The Bad ---- We thought the hygiene standards a little low ( we saw a family of 5 and several others, walk straight into the Self- Service food hall without putting hand cleaner on,as the Nora Virus is spread by touch I thought this is not on ,but , the guys on the door cannot cope with determined ignorant passengers. Cleanliness in Self Service food hall ,Tables not that clean although wiped when guests left table ! Walls doors of the said food hall not that clean. Allowing smoking in Casino stopped us using it ,it was like a smog in there

The Prices ---- The wines , spirits and beers were very expensive ,this was quite a talking point amongst passengers, we consumed very little( that was the down side ,the upside we saw no one intoxicated !! The coach transfers from port to City and vicser versa cost 9 to 12 dollars for one way!The excursion prices were well we thought very very high . would I go with them again ? maybe as they have so much that is really good .

Cabin review: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
Not as in the song "Wonderful wonderful Copenhagen" .Others liked it , but majority I spoke to did not enjoy ,What I called a Bland City .

Port
Again walking around not a bit pretty /interesting ,A Euro or Dollar to use Loo !! in cafe ( no public toilets )
