Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

Only travel with HA. Clean ship, food decent. Wait staff superb. Food although enticing and presentable Lukewarm when served, need either stronger heat lamp bulbs, or warm the food in the grill. Desserts Yummy, sugar free and regular..Bread pudding great at lunh, DRY during the evening meal.lines moved fast and tables were ready quickly.. cabins clean and spaious for two people.Balcny in our veranda cabin, was clean. Hamburger station was clean and served fast.Pizza station had the best Ruben Sandwich outside of nyc. Emarkatin and debarkation smooth, pre arranged.. excursion to cementary in Normandy, very sad, but allowed one to reflect and think of those tgat gave so much.

Lido buffet, as nice as it is only had TWO..2..waffle makers for over 1500 passengers..on the last day only ONE was FUNCTIONAL..prior to the last day, I inquiredfrom the dining room manager..why only two waffle maker..he squirted around the question and finally provided a brilliant answer..the way it was built..WOW..i could have told him that..the WHY was ommited. Just think only two makers and thousands that might have wanted asimpl WAFFLE...they solved the issue by serving quarter cold section of waffles...

Plenty of on board activities should one be inclined to attend and or partipate. We chose just to enjoy the ports and the calmness of the ocean.Next cruise, we will seek approval to bring our waffle maker on board, that should please the lido manager Glenn...ha ha

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VC

Spacious for two people..first day...shower door fell DOWN..fixed by mtnce crew. Fridge is enclosed in a cabinet with a door. Motor generates HEAT..left ajar..contents in safe located above the fridge...were nice and warm space was ok,

the cabin was kept immaculate by the room stewards. Color of cabin, could have bee a bit brighter.Ac could use some attention as it generated warm air at times, even though we had it on cooler perhaps they could do away with the towel animals at night, they want to save water by encouraging re use of towels, but use towels for animals made from towels at night.

Port Reviews


Very emotional, viewing the crosses of our fallen heroes in the cementary.well manicured and maintained area.
