Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2013

We had 2 Grand Suites. 1552 and 1554. 1554 was a little closer to the centrum but much noisier. You could hear the activities and music day and up to about 11 at night. During the night it was quiet until about 3 am when they started to clean deck 10 and drag the chairs about. I used ear plugs but for noise reasons wouldn't book 1554 again. Parents in 1552 rarely heard the centrum but had the same problem with deck 10. Great steward Agust.

Conciege Maria fantastic man and the bar person Priscilla great fun and served good drinks including some cocktails in the evening. Not a very busy lounge but we enjoyed a couple of hours there every night.

Food. Windjammer not so good. Lots of food, poor quality canteen type. Food rarely warm and often difficult to find somewhere to sit. Why no trays and why awful plastic/melamine plates and sometimes plastic cutlery when they ran out. After a couple of visits we avoided the place. Main dining room very good both at night and on sea days at lunch. Service was very good but the waiters are very busy. We ate most lunches in port and breakfast either in the room or concierge lounge.

Cabin Review

Excellent size but noisy from Centrum and overnight with staff cleaning deck 10, moving deck chairs.
