  • Sail Date: May 2016
  • Destination: Transpacific
  • Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Large Balcony

This was a 52 day cruise from Southhampton, England to Bejing, China, thru the Med, Suez Canal and lots of stops.

The good: Wonderful ship, great interior design with 110 volts and 220v. The shower and shower head were adjustable and removable. Great for big people like me. The ship is bigger than our biggest aircraft carrier. (1100 feet long with 16 decks) Sport courts, rock climbing walls and a bumper car arena. Basket ball anyone. Several pool and lots of jacuzzis. They have gone to resturant style dining, no large fantail dining room. You can go upstairs but never recognize it as a buffet. Super food. Go slow on a long trip. Great gym. The cabin design was spacious and utilized all the space with overhead bins on the bed. Biggest small cabin in the fleet. We were in a Verandah suite.

Entertainment was typical "ship", Dining was memorable because even though you switched dining venues nightly, you always had the same waiter. Each of the 4 free dining venues had different food. There were also 5 pay as you wish resturants.

The bad: expense: wine and drinks are the highest in the fleet.--$10 for a cocktail, $8 for a beer. A room bottle on HAL is $40, on RCI it is $65. They are liquor Nazi's so don't sneak unless you are humiliation proof. Tours are really expensive (use Aviator).

The electronic wizardry will really wow you. They were able to board and disembark faster than Symphony, Serenity, or Prisendam and that was with 4500 passengers. Beautiful ship, I would go again, and plan not to have a drink.

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Large Balcony

This was the best room ever. I have sailed 35 times. Layout was perfect, 40# flat screen at the end of the bed. (no DVD player and to get a DVD, you had to go to the desk and choose it and pay $12 to have it played in your room.

Room service was continental breakfast or pay for it. Room and makeup service was super.
