The crew on the ship is outstanding. Having arrived much too early at the terminal, we were greeted by the hotel director Akin who went to the ship and returned with coffee and pastries to make us feel welcome while we waited. The same attention to detail continued throughout the cruise from the entire staff. Besides being attentive to the passengers, the crew seemed to get along very well with each other, which speaks well for the management.
The cabin was larger than expected , very well furnished and refreshed at least twice per day. The bathroom was very well designed with adequate space for all our needs, plenty of drawer and counter space. We never felt that we needed more closet or drawer space.
Dining was always an enjoyable experience with open seating, allowing us to meet plenty of new friends. Food was quite good as well, with enough options for any palate. The 1/2 portion option is a nice idea. The breakfast buffet was great with plenty of choices (love the lox). Besides the buffet, there was always a nice selection of pancakes, waffles, omelets,etc.
