All cabins have balconies and the shower was one of the biggest we have seen on a ship. Main reason we took this cruise was for the 3 days in Israel. Stayed longer in most ports than other ships do - gave us time to explore on our own after going on ship excursion. Many of the free excursions are just overview of the location. Chef's Table specialty restaurant rotates the menu every three days - we went on Asian night and the food was excellent. At the buffet at lunch and dinner, they will grill some items (tiger prawns, chicken breast) for you. Our room steward was excellent. Breakfast menu in the Restaurant offers some unique items like "breakfast lamb chops" as well as the usual food items. Fitness area was smaller than other ships, but never crowded - also opened at 6am. Great entertainment. Many quiet places to relax. Free wifi was faster than most other ships we have been on. Several different lecturers gave about 12 lectures on varying topics.
