This was our first cruise ever. We subsequently went on four additional cruises in 2014.
One with Celebrity, two with Viking (never again under any circumstance) and a final cruise on the Marina in the Mediterranean. I expected more on the Marina, but in comparison to the other cruises, it was far better than they were.
The Suite (Penthouse) was huge in comparison, but we did pamper ourselves on the second trip on the Marina.The food was excellent (I react badly to High-Fructose Corn Syrup, & I only was in contact with it once at the milkshake bar). We went to Jacques Restaurant, the meal was superb, the Polish waiter was obnoxious (Only he, & he alone could select our meal.... it did not work). The Polo Grill served too much food, but it was soooo good. The food & service at the Terrace was wonderful.
