We are retired professionals from Australia - husband and wife aged 63 and 59. We holiday often in Europe and the Pacific. This was our second cruise.
We embarked in Venice on 15 October 2009. The embarkation was chaotic and we hadto stand in long queues to await security processing. Once on board our cabins were shown to us promptly and our luggage arrived several hours later.
The cabin was of a reasonable size with a functional bathroom and a great balcony. Linen, towels, etc were of highquality and the wardrobe space was quite large. The TV was a waste of time as apart from BORING CNN, there were only two other English language channels CNBC and BBC World. What about SKYMrMSC??
10083 - great cabin on left hand side towards the front. Spacious and fresh. Very clean. Small, but adequate and functional bathroom. Toilet necessities and linen replenished frequently. Bed very comfortable. wardrobe is quitelarge. Plenty of space beneath bed to store suitcases. Only one chair provided - a bit odd. However, there were two chairs on balcony and we bought one in as needed. Space to hang a pegless travellersclothesline. Very small clotheslinein shower. Laundry fees were OK, too high for underware but OK for shirts and for pressing crumpled jackets. Room security safe was easy to use.
Noise between cabins was not bad - we had elderly people each side so no bedroom antics were overheard!!! But you could hear coughing, but not snoring.
The cabin met our expectations.
