We chose this sailing for the nice long itinery and the opportunity to sail in the Yacht Club. The ship is beautiful and our cabin was very nice. Think we realized we are not really "butler" people as while he was very nice we really didn't feel the need to utilize him very often. The crowd was mostly European and English was the minority language in the Yacht Club. We loved that part and the people we met were very nice, if a bit reserved. The alcohol flows freely in the Yacht Club and they never even ask for your card. We had heard that an 18% gratuity would be added to each drink but that never happened. The biggest drawback is the Le Muse restaurant being at the back of the ship. It made us only go there for 1 breakfast and 1 lunch as was just easier to grab something light from the pool area. Dinners were ok but not special. Wait staff was excellent and attentive but the dishes were pedestrian. About what would get from average restaurant, not what you would expect from their top tier venue. We found the entertainment lacking and there was little going on during the day. At night the lounge band played the same songs every night, and that gets old on a 12 day sailing. The classical pianists were excellent and we often just relaxed in a bar with a nice cocktail listening to Mozart. The main theater was hit or miss. Singers not very good but the acrobats and aerialist were very good. Overall we had a nice time but think we expected more "wow" in the Yacht Club. Planning our next cruise on RCCL.
