Still disorientated !!
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
We enjoyed the ports although we did not like the way we were herded like sheep into lines to disembark the ship. We did not get to see much of the entertainment as the theatre was always packed to capacity and we were not prepared to stand. There is also a problem with the lifts on board as we were on deck 15 the lifts were always full before they reached our deck and we had to wait ages for one to reach our deck. There was also a problem finding somewhere to sit as every area was packed with people especially on sea days.We were unable to dock at St John as the wind was too high and this showed up a real problem as it was too cold to sit on deck and everyone wanted to be inside. There just was not enough space for everyone. Disembarkation was a bit chaotic but the luggage organisation was good. Overall a pleasant trip but we felt there were too many passengers on board and not enough facilities provided eg. Lifts, seating, theatre seats and Horizon buffet seating. I was also very cross to find that we had to pay for coffee in the International cafe as I have not come across this before on any other ship. I also found it very difficult to find my way around the ship and it was a bit disorientating. Less
