Selected this cruise because we wanted to visit the Norwegian fjords, and this suited out schedule. In reviewing this cruise, I am comparing with a previous experience - Celebrity Solstice one week from Barcelona to Tunisia, Italy and France.
Initially embarkation works quite well. We taxied from Southampton airport to terminal where our bags were whisked away from the taxi and delivered to our cabin. Registration and boarding was somewhat slow, and no complimentary drinks or snacks were served.
See cabin review for cabin details.
We had taken an option whereby we were allocated a cabin - minimum standard, balcony - rather than pre-selecting. We ended up with a mini-suite - 410 - on deck 15. Cabin was excellent. Very clean and well laid out. En-suite with bath/shower, good sized area for clothes and case storage, good sized sleeping area with king double bed and TV. Living area with couch, chairs, TV, table, mini bar separate from sleeping area by blackout curtain. Sliding doors to small balcony with table and two chairs.
Deck 15 is the highest deck with cabins. Deck 16 has pools and restaurants, etc., and over hangs lower decks. So balcony is shaded/sheltered from above. Cabin 410 was under an area where they have occasional dancing/music, so was a little noisy at times.
