We spent three days in Venice, prior to embarkation. Embarkation took less than fifteen minutes and then a pleasant lunch at La Veranda. We were in our room by 2:30. Very nice room with plenty of closet space and a butler who could answer any question and solve most problems.
We ate at all the restaurants and generally had very good, but not great food. Explorer does a better job with seafood than with beef.
Pacific Rim: If you really like Asian cuisines, then Pacific Rim will be a disappointment. A saute pan on an induction cook-top just does not produce the same results as a wok over an open flame. The wine selections do not pair that well with Asian foods. Same menu as web site every night.

Spacious and well engineered suite. Bathroom had excellent shower, double sinks, quality toiletries and separate commode. Very comfortable king sized bed and wall/doors to living room area blocked sound of TV. Comfortable living room area and separate dinning area with wet bar and mini-frig. Beverages/fruit restocked every day and choice of canapes each evening with a glass of prosecco. Breakfast each morning in our room at the exact time we requested.
