We chose this cruise because of the itinerary . My husband and I took our children, spouses and grandchildren (party of ten) on the 7 day cruise. My husband and I had gone on a previous cruise on another cruise line a few years ago and wanted to take our family to see some of these places. We booked 3 balcony rooms and 2 rooms across the hall. We were very disappointed in the cruise. The food was just o.k. - not as good as the food on other cruise lines that we have been on. There were no extras such as making animals out of towels, ice sculptures, waiters dancing like we have had on previous lines. We have always loved the waiters and cabin personnel on other cruises and hated to leave them. We met no one we felt that way about on this cruise. We found the crew members indifferent and not very friendly with the exception of the girls handing out plates & silverware in the buffet dining room. The cabins were very nice and the public areas. Most of the excursions were excellent.
The cabin was nice when we found it. When checking in the girl put the wrong cabin number on our key folder. We went to the desk and were told the ship was completely booked and they couldn't do anything about it. It was on the opposite side of the ship from the rest of the family. We had given our name and the names in our party and looking at the computer in front of them they were unable to figure out the problem. The key didn't work on (641) and we went to visit with other family members and found our name on the room next to them - the correct room.
