we have been on several cruises, our all time favorite being the seabourn. this came close second. we picked this cruise as we were taking our two teenage boys and treating my inlaws to a family vacation.
the hotel pre cruise was terrific(casa fuster), embarkation was flawless, the rooms ready on time. we had the largest room on board, the two bedroom, two and half bath room. we booked this as they were running a special for kids in your room for $999, so we paid exorbitantly, but we ended up prob breaking even, as we normally would do two penthouse staterooms for the four of our immediate family. my in laws were in a room right down the hall, which was spacious and lovely. our room was terrific, enormous, with a huge balcony. the carpet was a little worn and the furnishings could have used updating.
the food was very good in the regular restaurants, but surprisingly, not that great in their two high end restaurants, prime 7 and signatures. the best meal we have ever had was on princess cruise,in their steakhouse. my sons still talk about that meal. service was brisk and depending on the heritage of the waiter, either brusque or extremely friendly.
large room, with great balcony, perfect for a family.
