Cabin:

Decided to chance going on a cruise at this time of year.For first 8 days the seas were really calm and only the overnight from Naples to Rome was really rough.The flight to Rome was excellent with BA,embarkation was slick as usual.Cases were in room in an hour.Met Joseph our room steward who always had a smile and his service was wonderful.This ship always has good feel about it and out of all the cruise ships we have been on, its our favourite.

We chose anytime Dining,but not sure if we would do this again as we never really got to know the dining staff and missed out on meeting other cruisers which set dining allows.On one evening we went for diner in the Crown Grill,fillet steak was superb as was the service.On another evening we went to Sabatinis on our wedding anniversary and this was an absolute treat. Waiter Vanilson Carvalho excelled throughout this experience, highly recommended.I would say that the Horizon Court has improved signifantly since we were last on this ship.We bought a speciality Coffee card which was worthwhile as our room was near the International cafe.

Another treat was Vines wine bar,Joy the wine waitress remembered our names from the first night and she really looked after us.Another tip about Vines they don't really promote is the Flights of Wine which are excellent value , served in Chrystal glasses and served with Tapas.Never really felt ripped off with drinks on this ship(not like some other cruise companies ).As this bar was in the Atrium we were also able see the other entertainment treats going on.

Cabin Review

Got an outside Cabin with Window,it suited us on this trip as we never thought we would use a balcony at this time of year.Cabin was more than adequate and room attendant looked after us real well.
