We celebrated our 30th Anniversary and husband's birthday on April 2nd onboard the cruise. The staff helped us organize a dinner of about 25 passengers we had recently met, at the top-deck restaurant. Another passenger also celebrated a b'day so we were presented with two birthday cakes. The organ player serenaded us with a special play list that got everyone dancing under the full moon. It was a very special night with new friends and the staff really went above and beyond to make it happen.
When we returned to our room it was decorated with 'swan' sculpture towels, balloons, streamers, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries! Great surprise!!
Over the course of the cruise, I had several minor health issues and the Doctor, Cindy was very helpful and attentive to my needs.
The guides on each outing were very knowledgeable about the specific areas and very helpful to those under their watch.
All flights, hotel stays and transfers went smoothly with staff guiding the passengers at every step. Very well organized and we felt well cared for at every venue along the way.
Water pressure in the showers was a big issue. Plus there is only a half-door on the showers which means water gets all over the floor when showering which is a safety issue. Also it was apparent that this was an older ship as rust and mold was evident in the bath shower areas.
