Sail Date: Jun 2017
Cabin: Panorama Suite with French Balcony

We departed Budapest after a lovely day of exploring... We were given the Life jacket and safety drill and it was mandatory, which it should be. Our "welcome aboard" went smoothly and we departed on time... we had a small window of time to unpack before dinner which was fine. Dressing for dinner was never a problem as the code of dress was always "Country Club Casual' The dining room was lovely, and set so nicely every night

THE CREW could not have been more professional, friendly or more helpful. They were always there to serve us when we needed a hand In or outside the ship.

Our cabin, A Panorama suite, was well appointed with a large living Orchid and plenty of bottled water on our table to use. The window took up one entire wall of our cabin. It opened almost the entire way and was always spotless. The room was configured to our request and the beds were very comfortable and turned down every night with the next days itinerary and any other info we might require were left on the beds.. I loved the European duvets. Our bathroom was much larger than your average bathroom on a ship ..it had a full large shower, great water pressure and lovely toiletries. The towels were different colors so you never got them mixed up. Our room attendant took special care of us and she was always trying to make us more comfortable.
