We picked this cruise for its amazing itinerary and indeed, it was very interesting. We loved the combination of ports and sea days to relax. Here are all the other positives: great entertainment, convenient ship layout, the condition of the ship and of course, the fact that we had JS helped. At the same time the layout of the storage space was somewhat inconvenient compared to regular balcony on Princess. Our waitress and assistant in MDR was wonderful providing great service. Here are some negatives: our cabin was very dirty when we got in, there was terrible smell, our cabin attendant was nowhere to be found. The air condition was not functioning properly. After a while, the supervisor came by and the issues were taken care of within a day. The food selection and quality was not there, even in the specialty steak house. The Italian and Izumi was very good, both service and food. Also, it appears that all activities were happening in the centrum while a huge lounge remained empty. There were never enough seats in. The centrum and it was difficult to participate in the activities or even watch them. People had to push and shove to get near.
Overall it was a good cruise.
