Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2012
Cabin: Concierge Class 2

We looked forward to this cruise for several reasons but especially because it gave us the opportunity to cross off several "bucket list" items. The embarkation process in Rome was easy and quick. The ship, one of the newest in the fleet was beautiful and elegant as we expected.

We enjoyed the cabin with one drawback, we were located on deck 12 (top cabin deck) right under the Ocean View Cafe. It was noisy several times during the cruise (like sound of chairs being dragged across floor) during the middle of the night due to suspected cleaning. We booked the Concierge guarantee and therefore did not chose this cabin and I would recommend that anyone else assigned this cabin ask to be changed for the above described reasons.

The Captain on this ship was one of the most entertaining I have every had with a great sense of humor that endeared him to all. Comments such as: "In the event I become disabled then the staff captain will take over, in the event he also becomes disabled then another officer will take command, in the event he becomes disabled also, then you are really going to have a bad day!"
