Sail Date: Jan 2008

have taken many cruises-loved this. the ship is beautiful and immaculate. the ports of call and day tours were varied and fun. the outside cabin, altho smaller than some other lines was done in such a space saving way that it seemed much larger. all the employees are gracious and caring. drinks are varied and done just right. they really excel in entertainment-at night there were vegas style shows, magic shows, opera, gymnastic, oriental, and classical music shows(and that was only in the main showroom). most bars offer great entertainment. a great poolside crew kept things hopping for hours. they had a big poolside party with live band which was wonderful. the captain was always around and his crew seemed to really like him. he gave two free cocktail parties. altho 4 languages were spoken,this was not a problem. elevators were quick,signage was simple. breakfast was like all other cruises and so was lunch-but if you like all different types of pizza and pasta-this is the place to be. the ship is sparkling clean and i felt safe. the only thing about this cruise that was not perfect was dinner. the dining room is pretty and formal, staff attentive and courteous-dinner was many courses but some of the entrees need improvement-but this is a continental ship and done in this manner. they need to be more organized and quicker at dinner-i didn't want to sit for 2 hrs to have dinner because i wanted to go to all the fun shows and bars. had a really memorable time and will cruise with them again!
