We booked this cruise due to the itinerary ... which was totally changed prior to the start of the cruise. We missed the stop in Key West due to weather. no big deal since we have been there in the past, but a cruise that was booked to make 4 stops that only made one ... big disappointment! After 3 days they ship ran out of Chardonnay, 4 days ended all the Pinot Griseous, and on day 5 ... the Slovenian Blanc was depleted! on day 5 they also ran out of Makers Mark Bourbon ... the only liquor we drink. We bought a silver package ... and it did us little good. Great staff ... but it took forever to get the complimentary first glass of wine at lunch and dinner. I know this is a new ship ... and the bumps need to be worked out ... but there were obvious misses that a ship of this quality should not have missed.

There is a bit of work still to be done ...

Cabin Review

Cabin 3024
The cabin was great ... except that there were signs of a previous guest in the room ... a used bathrobe and slippers ... and a pen from the Marriott in Beijing. There was a rattle in the balcony door that made it hard to sleep at night. The beds are great ... as were the pillows. There is a pulley on the drapery that opens and closes the blackouts when you give them a yank ... interesting add on, but a waste of money. Love the heated floors! The best towels.
