First, as an engineer myself, I have to say that the ship is indeed a great expression of what engineers are able to accomplish. Especially the central park is very impressive and to me it was a place of inspiration and an oasis of tranquility especially after midnight when most people were at sleep.
Because of the size of the ship we did not even notice that we were moving and the sea was not always calm.
This is definitely on the positive side, as well as the entertainment that was offered. However a cruise is not only about the size of the ship and the entertainment it is a lot more.
Looking at the cabin, it was disappointing in many aspects. To me the interior design was done by a drunken interior designer, there is no way a sober person with taste would combine colors and materials in such a way. The armchairs were dirty, nothing that can be fixed by cleaning. In the cabin an undefined smell was omnipresent, something like dust of dirty carpets or curtains. The cabin steward is not to blame for it, he did his job very well. However he noticed it since every time when he made our cabin he had to spray an odor, trying to kill one bad smell with another bad smell. I still don't know which of the 2 bad smells I prefer. The veranda had 2 lounge chairs with cushions, one of those you rather don't want to touch, it felt like these were not cleaned, ever. Or maybe just bad quality? The floor of the veranda was dirty, it became apparent on the bottom of the foot or on our socks if we had these on when going out to enjoy the view. The veranda floor was cleaned only once, well I have to say it was not cleaning, all that was done is water it and let the sun dry it. The noise in the cabin was louder than on other ships, noticeable louder when compared with NCL Getaway. Especially in the 2-nd bedroom. On the positive side I have to say that the cabin was large enough for us 3, we had enough towels, it was cleaned properly.
