Ship was fantastic despite some teething problems. All staff were friendly and helpful. Some , particularly cabin steward and restaurant staff fall into the excellent category. Food was excellent but the menu in the main restaurants failed to offer the variety we have experienced on previous cruises. Lifts, particularly in midships were pathetic. With no stair access between decks in midships we had to use lifts to even go up or down 1 deck or walk half the length of the ship to get to another deck. Overall the lifts were too small and the lifts regularly went past decks without stopping. This may seem like a petty issue, but try living like this for 2 weeks. Also it took us 47 minutes on disembarkation day to get a lift from B deck to our exit meeting point. For a Fleet Flagship this is an embarrassment.

Beautiful Ship, But...

Cabin Review

Cabin B502
Great cabin and balcony which were compact but not claustrophobic. Cabin Steward was fantastic and kept cabin immaculate and well stocked.
