This was our very first ocean cruise and we couldn't have asked for anything better!! The whole experience was outstanding. We really enjoyed the food and appreciated the fact there were so many dining options. One of the nicest surprises was the lobster dinner - very good!! We enjoyed the entertainment very much. We learned quickly that you have to be early to get a good seat!! Very good shows - especially the Beatles! We spent quite a lot of time in the Explorer Lounge which was a little on the cold side but we were able to find some blankets to cover with. Eventually it warmed up. We found the pool area to be very comfortable and did enjoy it on our two days at sea. We very much enjoyed all the excursions. There are some places I would love to visit again. I found the tour guides very good for most of the tours. Some were definitely more knowledgeable than others. We also appreciated having time to ourselves to explore as we did in Sorrento and Venice. We so much appreciated the servers in all the restaurants. Very friends and helpful. They would go out of their way I believe to ensure you enjoyed the whole dining experience. There was an occasion when we asked for a specialty coffee that wasn't on the list. They went to Google to find the recipe and it was delicious!! We enjoyed the cooking class we had on board. A lot of humour and some delicious recipes.

Wonderful Experience

Cabin Review

Cabin
Our cabin was very comfortable and we loved the balcony. We did have issues with WIFI. After September 25th we couldn't connect from our cabin. The bed was very comfortable and the closet was certainly large enough. We could have used some larger drawers but we managed okay. It was great that we could store our luggage under the bed. Our room service was excellent. The room was kept very clean and our towels were changed every day, although we didn't expect it. The shampoo and soap products were very good. I can't remember the cabin number.
