Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Balcony

We (2 couples) chose this cruise to return from a European vacation rather than fly back to the US. We knew the cruise would be very formal but as one English passenger said when I queried him about his experience on the 2nd day of the cruise, "They are quite serious".

LIkes: We booked the Brittania Club, therefore we had our own private dining table for four each night with the same servers. The food was truly excellent, on par with Oceania Cruise line, which is noted for it's food. (Kudos to our servers, Brendo and Orsulah).

We ended up eating breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant. We only gained an average of 2 pounds per person for a 7 day cruise and we believe that is because we mostly avoided the Kings Grill, which is very chopped up, located in several separated rooms with a limited selection of food. We understand it had been upgraded in 2016 from the original design. I cant see how it could have been much worse then. Also, the brewed coffee in the restaurant is very good, unlike the machine coffee in the Kings Grill.

Cabin Review


Cabin BF

We stayed in Cabin 12029 and it was a balcony cabin on the front of the boat. We felt no unusual motion and the room was very nice except for the shower floor, which should have been replaced in the last retrofit. Very nice storage, balcony was great.

Disclaimer, there were no shore excursions on this trip, but if you inadvertently click on a circle you can't undo.
