Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin: Veranda Suite

Very much liked the smaller ships. Would not go on the bigger ship again. Staff from our previous cruises tried hard, and were great. Too many inexperienced crew.Hygiene standards slipped badly. Guests not using the hand gel and abusing crew who asked them to do so. Hotel Manager and Captain should have done more. Thomas Keller Restaurant not good, food drowned in salt. The Restaurant and Colonnade consistently good. The suite was narrower and less practical than in the smaller ships. No laundry. Wifi poor and expensive. The ship was full from Sydney, Seabourn had been discounting the Bali to Singapore leg, which did not please those of us who had paid up ahead. Handre, the Cruise Director to Bali was, as always, excellent. Food and Wines were good, Sushi was great, which showed up the missed opportunity that is Thomas Keller. Do not see the point of The Retreat, Pool smaller ( I think), certainly less shade, and more passengers. I wonder whether Carnival really understand this market, which is very different from the rest of their fleet.
