Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

We booked Aurea Suite und as Black Member in the Voyager Club we expected high comfort and attentive service. We wanted to enjoy the five-day-transatlantik and the lovely islands of south carribean as Barbados, Antigua, St. Kitts Tortuga and so on. But the five sea-days are pure horror. All sunbeds were reserved by towels at 7 a.m. so that a lot of people get no one the whole day. Out of sheer need, they bought a ticket for the private sundeck reserved for Aurea guests. And so this sun-deck likewise was crowded with reserved sundbeds, so that the Aurea-guest didn't find a free one. Same in the Spa, where are not more than ten relaxation beds for all users!

It's fact, that there is to less public space on this big ships for all passangers.

As Black-Member and Aurea-Guest we had priority embarkation - but we had to stand in the crowd in Genua.
