Sail Date: Nov 2009
Cabin: Balcony

Although we booked this cruise very late, we had an aft balcony cabin on the Baha deck, and loved the location - across from the laundry and after the last set of elevators. We enjoyed mostly beautiful weather, mostly calm seas, and wonderful blue skies. We did miss one port - Katakalon (for Olympia, Greece) because of thunderstorms and large waves. But, in a port-intensive cruise as this, missing one port was fine, and most people said that if you had to miss one port, this was the one to miss. So, we didn't feel that we had missed out on anything.

All in all, this cruise was fabulous! The best that we have ever taken!

I had read reviews of the poor condition of the ship and the unfriendly staff, so I was not sure what to expect. I will admit that we had booked this cruise very late (we did not get the 2 for 1 deals that many people got.) We booked the cruise for one main reason - our friend Arny Galoyo was the pianist at the Promenade Lounge, and we wanted to cruise again with him. If you have seen Arny, you know that he is a fabulous entertainer. We had cruised with Arny before, and will probably only cruise with him again in the future, we enjoy him so much. Anyway, we booked to experience the cruise with him, and found that we got so much more in addition!

Cabin B708 - across from the laundry so very convenient when you want to throw in the quick load. After the last set of elevators, so fairly quiet. Love the location. Smaller than the same cabin on the Crown, but totally adequate. Covered balcony.
