Cruise was chosen for itinerary and experience with this line. Overall, a new, contemporary ship beautifully done with generous size cabins, public areas. The service through all departments was virtually flawless. There are eight evening restaurants on board, two of which are additional cost, two outside. We don't think extra cost restaurants are appropriate at this "all inclusive" level. The real problem is a limited menu selection in each venue, which for the first 20 days never changed. Shortly after the first 18 day segment, a special of the evening appeared in two of the larger venues, perhaps the result of passenger feedback. The special, typically continental, made little sense in Indochine, the Asian. The two outside restaurants, were too cold to enjoy for many days. Unlike other luxury lines, there were no regional or country specific full menu offerings on some evenings. The Silver Note opens at 8:00 PM for a couple of hours, with a very limited menu. There is no casual dining both in dress code and atmosphere. While food quality and presentation was always superb, there is a lack of sensitivity to availability of dietary requirements, ie. sugar free. Ship ran out of Non alcoholic wine in twenty days. Normally stocked, and requested by us in advance for cabin, none was brought on in Florida at start of cruise. Senior officers said they did not have the authority to bring it in from US, but had to wait two weeks plus for a sister ship to supply them. Entertainment was limited and repetitive. Ran out of American Chardonnays and Becks with a very limited beer selection, hardly any regional beers brought on.

Cabin Review

Classic Verandah Suite
Cabin CV 612
Cabin was very good. Clean, well attended. Closet is a bit small for a cruise of this lenght, but we could have taken a small suite. A strong point was butler duties segragated from cabin attendant, which resulted in a very high level of attentive service. Laundry quality excellent. Room service very good.
