Sail Date: Mar 2009
Traveled with children

Embarkation was fine. The port area near Queen Mary is under construction and there was confusion on where to go and the lines were long when we arrived. There were plenty of staff around to direct us. We had priority, VIP, boarding and eventually were able to find the VIP line and check-in area.

Once onboard we went right to our suite and left our carry-ons in the room and then headed upstairs to eat and look around the boat. It was beautiful. It has a "Renaissance" art look with many paintings. I agree with other reviewers that there are a number of nudes in the decor but nothing tasteless. My 13 year old son thought it was funny to see all the nude pics, but it was fine.

The room was very nice. We were on the 6th floor in a balcony suite and were very impressed with the room and all its storage. We unpacked and tucked our suitcases under the bed for the week. Used the suitcases as our hamper as the week went on. Used the jacuzzi tub once.

Cabin Review

Cabin 11

Great balcony, would have liked lounge chair.

Lots of space in the suite for storage; didn't use it all and we had four full suit cases.
