Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Promenade Stateroom

We chose this cruise to sample Micronesia and Australia. The ship was just the right size to do this. Anything smaller would have been short on public spaces and activities. Service was excellent. We even had to have a leaky toilet fixed at 4:00 a.m. The repairman was there in 10 minutes to fix it and within 20 minutes security was there with a room attendant to sanitize the whole bathroom. Now that's service!

Activities on board were many, but we mostly just did a few (Sharon's LCR game was fun). The entertainment on this cruise was above average with some very good headliners.

Food and service was above average on this cruise although some people thought they should get Park Avenue quality. Holy smokes....they are trying to prepare meals for over 3000 people three times a day. We took a galley tour which was very interesting. We even got to see the head chef taste test what was going to be presented that evening. We did the mystery dinner theater. For those that have not tried this event, it is a fun 'campy' acting activity with a great meal at the end in Chops on this cruise.

Cabin Review

Promenade Stateroom

Cabin PR

Nice cabin...clean...functional...with a view of the Promenade. The only thing about it were the mirrors were getting old an deeded to be replaced. We would have though this would have been done on the last drydock.
