Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

We chose this cruise as we had never been overseas and decided to venture out of our traditional cruises/vacations. We had always wanted to go to Portugal and explore England.

As of today we still have not seen Portugal. Our itinerary was changed last minute so we didn't make a port call and our other two ports were changed so excursions that we had booked ahead now were cancelled. We had to rebook once onboard - again not enough space for those that wanted to go. Plus I had to spend most of my days waiting in line.

The ship capacity did not allow you to take part in all of the entertainment on board or dining facilities. You had to stand in line to make reservations for everything and plan ahead. We were on vacation - not on a schedule --- We were used to going to a show if you wanted to on a particular day - not signing up ahead, then when you arrived - (oh be early) you had to scramble for seating. The service in the dining room if you didn't do specialty dining was so-so at dinner - Lunch was terrible! Room service at breakfast not one day was correct. We had to call for something each day - (ie. silverware, food items)

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin location was good - Housekeeping needed to be a lot better.

Room service seemed never to get there or be correct.

Port Reviews

Le Havre

ended up at this port on another day than originally been scheduled. We had a tour lined up but due to change couldn't reschedule - poor day to arrive as places were not open on Sunday am. Disappointed
