Joined the cruise in Le Havre which seemed to confuse a lot of things. Boarded fist day with cruise card, next day was delivered ocean medallion as well. First time I returned to my cabin door was already unlocked this needs to be emphasised better as thought my room had been left unlocked! Internet MUCH faster with new system which is great. Loved the new beds very comfortable. New tvs are good with a lot of on demand tv shows and movies BUT did miss the bridge announcements coming through on tv. The tv weather was not updated for more than 7 days, stuck on an old forecast. My cabin was very warm had thermostat set on Lowest setting almost the entire cruise and very hot at night. Food was excellent. Didn’t wait more than 10 minutes for tenders, very slick operation. Ships tours as always are very expensive I did all of mine with similar itinerary online for 50% less. Shows We’re repetitive from previous cruise 18 months ago. I was given a new set of exactly the same forms the day after I embarked!! The most annoying thing is the non stop Effy and Art Auction leaflets. What a waste of paper. Perhaps people could sign up for these things rather than delivering to every cabin. My passport was taken from me in Southampton and returned on disembarkation day! As usual there were the chair hogs in International cafe who were not eating or drinking but taking up the chairs preventing others using them. Laundry is a nightmare 2 washers and 2 dryers for 2 floors and token machine not working! Would have enjoyed more time in some ports.

Great itinerary, entertainment average
