A lovely liner but it took us nearly 7 days to find our way around. Some of the public rooms are badly placed and access is not easily found. The presentations and entertainment were excellent which helped pass the time away when crossing the Atlantic. An observation also was that the public toilets were not clearly marked and hard to find. A great experience to travel on this beautiful liner. There were plenty of board games available for passengers to enjoy and if anyone is interested in learning bridge, there are great classes available. Obviously bridge has a big following as there were intermediate classes. The tables and seating in the Kings Court, where people can dine casually, are mostly hidden from view when entering the buffet area. Instead of just walking in and seeing what tables were available, a person has to walk up and down looking in the “nooks and crannies”. We much preferred the Lido on the Elizabeth and Victoria which provided clear and open views of the dining area.
This was a great cabin on Portside. Sailing into New York in the early hours was fantastic especially being able to view the Statue of Liberty and other landmarks. No obstructions whatsoever.
