Had been on the Diamond before and found her to be a well designed ship. Easy to get around and flows very nicely. spacious deck forward that all can be on to view things forward of the ship, great for when entering harbours or viewing fiords. Sadly this is lacking in the newer ships with everything enclosed and one cannot get the feel for the port. Nothing like the wind and taste of saltly air first thing in the morning with a nice cup of hot chocolate in opnes hand. Crew are top notch, food pretty good, dining and buffet easy to work. formal nights were well done with majority of people getting dressed up for the occassion. Cabins OK, bedding divine ,Pillows luxurious,.but need to replace shower curtains with doors. Bars are well laid out and accessible. entertainment staff eager and full of fun. Movies under the stars a nice feature with the popcorn and blankets. All in all one of their better ships, sailed on the new ' Majestic' and was not impressed at all.

Great ship great crew
