People have all different expectations and so there many different reactions as exemplified here. This was my 6th cruise on the Rotterdam and having taken very many cruises I now find that this is my best cruise ever. I boarded the Rotterdam on January 7 in Rotterdam.I admit that the boarding on a very cold and rainy day was for me a nightmare but everything improve greatly once the wheelchair arrived for this 90 year old lady, my great adventure began. I only need the wheelchair for distances. My stateroom was 2595 for the 24 day segment. I left the cruise in DUBAI January 31 having made some very good friends starting with the servers on my 2 person table. Once at home I woke up one morning and simply said "why don't you go back"? So I made my preparations including the required Indian visa. So I again boarded the Rotterdam in Singapore for the return to South Hampton.The following is how I described my return on my facebook page. "Well everyone I am back from a wonderful cruise. We were able to celebrate Holy Week and Easter on board.The priest, Father Walter Smith, SJ and the crew did everything possible to make the celebration memorable and they succeeded wonderfully. We made a stop in Citiavecchia, Italy which is the port for Rome. With the help of a tour guide, Roseangela and a crew member, Victor, I was able to navigate all the steps at St. Peter's basilica and was able to go through the celebrated Holy Door. This is an unforgettable experience. I was looking to book another particular cruise which I thought would quite possibly be my last cruise ever when I discovered that the last cruise had pretty well made another cruise impossible for sometime. So I will remain home for a good long time and my cat, Heart, named by Kara Jean, is very happy." In addition the crew made a fantastic video of themselves which we found on our beds the last night of our cruise. It a great memory of some great friends and memories. I was in utter awe the first time I watched the video. I was shedding tears at the 2nd watching and at the 3rd watching I was determined to somehow make that next cruise while I am still able. I am sorry for the length of this review, but after so very many cruises this is the first review and probably my last. Read Less
