Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2012
Cabin: Balcony

The best thing to say about the ship other than it brand new, is that the public rooms, EXCEPT for the casino, are very nice. It goes down hill from there. First, the staterooms, I had a balcony are a very small 222 feet. The furniture is oversized for the room. Very poor layout. Second, the Men's restrooms on the Lido deck, by the buffet, are incredibly small. As long as we are on the subject, the layout of the buffet is very bad. There is only ONE station to get your Lemonade or Ice Tea, and they insist on bringing it to you, which takes forever. Unlike most other ships, the waiter/bus staff do not help people with disabilities in carrying their trays to the table.

For a ship of 3000+ passengers they have a small, and very crowded casino. There is no room to walk around in. Even the Emerald Princess has a better lay out. It seems that they tried to add 100 extra cabins in a space not suited for it. Also it is not a friendly ship for people with mobility issues, as many decks do not go all the way through.

While I know the ship was on one of its Maiden voyages and you expect some problems, the majority of the serve staff was NOT what you would call friendly nor service oriented, which has nothing to do with the newness.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BB

A very small 222 foot cabin. Much too much closet space and no room to move around, The bathroom is unbelievably small.. 2 people can NOT be in it at the same time. The furniture (chair) that is in it is too large for the space.
