Sail Date: Jun 2014
Cabin:

Embarkation: Was a breeze. Shortly after checking in we were escorted to lunch. After lunch and a quick self guided tour around the ship we arrived at our room to find our luggage was already there.

Room/Butler/Steward: Our room was fantastic. More than enough space for the three of us who stayed there. The bonus was the Haven courtyard outside our door which included a pool, hot tub and small counter with assorted snacks throughout the day. Our butler was a sweetheart. He stopped by to introduce himself on the first day when I happened to mentioned my love of gummy bears and my brother's love of chocolate chip cookies. For the remainder of our trip, without fail, we would return to our room at the end of the day to find a plate full of cookies and a bowl of gummy bears on our table. So impressive. And finally, our steward was phenomenal. He remembered all of our names from the very first day and was a friendly face in the hallways. He would clean and turndown our room while we were at meals and left us towel animals each night.

Food: Most of our breakfasts and lunches were at Moderno or O'Sheenan's. Nothing special but pretty good. We tried the Garden Cafe for breakfast one morning and it was not a great experience. Seating was difficult to find and there was little order to the buffet lines. I was constantly dodging other passengers to get my food.

Cabin Review

Very spacious. Great location.
