We had always wanted to spend time at sea. We heard about repositioning cruises and chose this one. We had no idea what to expect and were absolutely delighted with certain aspects of the cruise. We did not expect the internationalism of the staff, nor did we expect the compact cabins to be so beautifully designed and comfortable. We liked their decoration, the sumptuous and copious towels, the fine bed linens and excellent lighting. The sea was much more important to us than games or shows. We loved looking out our window (deck 4, port side, outside cabin) before gong to sleep at night. We enjoyed walking or sitting and reading on the promenade deck. We loved looking at the ship's wake or standing in the bow. We had trouble finding a quiet place for a pre-dinner drink. Perhaps this was because we were newcomers and there were places that we didn't know about. We finally resolved this issue by having a drink in our cabin. We took a lot of our breakfasts and lunches in the Main Dining Room. It was a treat to be served and we did enjoy meeting different people at each meal. Being pampered by our room steward Krishna, eating delicious food served by graceful s servers, sea gazing, spending time in our cabin were the parts of the cruise that we enjoyed most.

Our first transatlantic crossing

Cabin Review

Cabin 4044
Well decorated, well laid out, well lighted, attractive, superior sheets and towels. Krishna did excellent work. He was able to help with personal requests and he spoke French to us when we asked him to.
