We really lived the perfect dream of our life!
We had big hopes (not even expectations) on our dream - and also fears. Hopes as we fulfilled a dream of our life and you want to have it perfect then and fears as we thought that a) the average age is very high and b) that we might be bored. Actually there we even younger couples than us (48+50) and also families with kids and teenagers. So this was a surprise already, although there is no doubt that the average is possibly >65 years. Boring is something which can not happen! I had books with me – and even did not manage to read one page. Instead we preferred to be outside, although weather was not the best, and I enjoyed just looking to the Atlantic and relax. Or walk around, have a coffee, (champagne) afternoon tea etc. I truly can not recall having had such a relaxing and wonderful vacation before! No phone, no mails, no computer, no TV – we just disconnected ourselves from any communication! GREAT!
The service in the stateroom (Thank you, Tita!), restaurants, the G32 – just everywhere – was great! For the Kings Court you need to get used to – not on the service at all, but on the guests and how they sometimes behave. But to have snack or late breakfast it was good.
Balcony, starboard on deck 11, midship. Ready to move in upon on our arrival. Good size, enough space for luggage and hangers for clothes. Some prefer portside on a WB, but actually we were happy with our cabin. No noise from deck 12 from games or similar. Hairdryer really is a tiny one so I was happy to have my own with me. The stateroom was always very clean. Bed and layers just wonderful – we slept like babies with open windows and listening to the ocean.....!
We embarked in Hamburg . so no excursions
We preferred to stay on board and relax.
