Additional details

Sail Date: Jul 2012
Cabin: Verandah Suite

Excursions were too expensive, one could go on shore and find the same type for less than half. Food in dining room Rotterdam was bland, slow, and showed little imagination for culinary tastes. My wife and I ate three times in the Pinnacle Grill, found the food to be outstanding, service excellent, and well worth the $25 add on. Medical facilities were great as I had to use twice.

Our new Lanai Room 356 seems a bit small, the couch was mini, the desk very small. storage good, beds excellent, bath Ok, but water closet is set very close to tub. Used shower 100%, had to be very careful when exiting tub. The most concerning isue, your outside Lanai chair pads are put in your room each night, and one must remember when the sun goes down, the UV light enables passengers walking the deck to look into your room. One quickly, unfortunately, learns to pull the drapes. Next time, we'll pay for a Veranda.

Lastly, their was a 110 plug but at the desk, so my wife had to leave the bath area and sit at the desk to dry her hair. What will be,will be!

Port Reviews

Reykjavik

Hired a taxie for one hour and paid $60, unfortunately the driver did not speak English very well, other wise we saw everything that the Ship bus tour did.

Dublin

The city tour was a bust, studentds decided to have a Zombie Parade, basically it shut down the entire center of downtown Dublin for two hours. Basically all we saw was the Book of Kells after waiting in line for an hour, I feel while it is truely a noteworthy experience, their crowd contol leaves a lot to be desired. On the second day took a bus out to a farm and spent the day being an Irishmen. Sone of the trip highlights, from making Soda Bread, to milking a cow, to assisting in rounding up sheep, to learning how to hurl. The experience was very worthwhile.
