Cabin: Ocean View

This was our first transatlantic cruise and I have been totally converted. I never imagined we would have such amazing weather in December and be suntanning around the pool. The crew went above and beyond to make the passengers happy. The food in the Windjammer (buffet style) was outstanding with a huge variety of choices, to satisfy the most fussy eaters or those with food allergies. Finding a table was never a problem as many people chose to eat all meals in the dining room and be served. Food in the dining room was very average with a lot of the same standard dishes every night and a couple of new choices. It was hit and miss, some nights good and others not.

Entertainment staff and cruise director Elvis were great. We could have been kept busy from early morning till late at night with a full program of varied activities had we wanted to. There was never a moment when we didn’t have something we wanted to do, even if it was reading in one of the lounges.

Entertainment in the Broadway Theatre was mediocre. Maybe 4 out of 14 nights we had really good entertainment. Possibly this being a repositioning cruise it was harder to find entertainers to stay on board for a long stretch of time.

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin 2N

Cabin was small. No room for my husband’s suitcase to fit under the bed which was a little inconvenient. Cabin was well located as close to dining room and theatre. First cruise where no mini fridge but as we never use one it was a surprise but not an inconvenience.
