Our trip started in Hamburg, Germany on June 21, 2019, stopped in Southampton for the day on June 24 and onwards to New York arriving June 30.
The trip had 2 very different vibes:
The Hamburg to Southampton segment had many more families with "free range kids", noise, heavy patronage of the buffet, garbage on the floors, noise at night, kids running and knocking on doors, kids running free during the life safety segment, kids running down the promenade deck careening into guests and people sitting in chairs etc. Adults with loud voices and shouting in the public rooms.
Had a much sought after in hull balcony cabin. Quiet which is very important to us. The cabin was well maintained and comfortable. The bed was as comfy as anything on Oceania for example. The bathroom was a little tired (not updated in the last upgrade).
The size was excellent. The in hull balcony does limit the amount of sun that comes into your cabin but on a TA it is a good location.
