Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2014
Cabin: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

We booked the cruise 18 months ago as the termination of an extended holiday in England and were looking forward to a great cruise experience as an opportunity to unwind. Frankly, we were neither delighted or satisfied, in fact we were extremely disappointed with this cruise. Note: We have made 17 cruises (5 RCCL).

Some positive notes to begin with: Our Cabin Steward Imade Semarajaya was absolutely superb, a true gem (12 on a scale of 1-10); our Table waitress Veronica and assistant waiter Chadwick were super stars (10 out of 10); the dining room beverage waiter Junior (10 out of 10) he greatly enhanced our dining experience; beverage waiters Janice (Globe and Atlas) and Odell (Casino) also provided superb service with a smile. Head Waiter Denzell was attentive and concerned with ensuring things ran smoothly.

Entertainment 4 ****, except CATS at * thus lowering the overall rating from 5*****: With the exception of CATS the entertainment was excellent, best in class, in particular Frozen in Time, The Aqua Show, Comedy Club, Creegan, etc. Unfortunately the venues were over-crowded (standing room only) and availability of the theater to relieve overcrowding because of the weather was limited by rehearsals for CATS.

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D6

Cabin-Balcony, Sea View 4 ****: Our Cabin Steward Imade was absolutely superb, a true gem (12 on a scale of 0-10); cabin slightly smaller than similar cabins on previous cruises (e.g. Radiance of the Seas) this was not a problem except for the reduced storage, i.e. drawer space. The change in policy prohibiting smoking on the balcony was a surprise and very inconvenient (particularly since comfortable smoking areas were so limited, more so because of the severe weather and a large percentage of passengers were Europeans with a high proportion of smokers. Do not understand why smoking on a balcony of a ship travelling at 17 knots seems to be a major issue, after all smokers are paying passengers as well.
