First cruise

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Other

This was our first cruise and we were concerned that my disability would keep me confined in the cabin...not so! The ship is designed to accommodate people using walkers and wheelchairs and the staff were more than accommodating. Our cabin (1028)was well designed and the bathroom was very easy to use. The closet had drop down racks and there were plenty of additional hand rails, which came in handy as the crossing was rough at times.

We were a bit disappointed with the food and agree with other reviewers that most offerings were quite lacklustre. Breakfast in the cafeteria were always good though and the staff there were particularly helpful, always offering assistance when needed!

Most of the entertainment was amateurish, and the first show was remarkably similar to a senior high school performance, we left after the second song. The exception was Cameron's show, it was entertaining and very professional.

Disembarking was dreadful, we were scheduled to More leave at 0900 and finally got off at 12:20, we missed our train and I know many people missed their flights. I don't understand why they couldn't have prioritized people who had to catch flights and trains.

The transatlantic crossing was very rough at times, making it very difficult to move around so we will probably stick to calmer waters on our next cruise. Less

Crowded and dirty. The long lines and thick crowds at most sites made it difficult for those of us using a walker.
