Sail Date: Apr 2010
Cabin: Obstructed Oceanview

- Check-in very good after we figured out there was a separate area for 'suite' check-in. Wouldn't have enjoyed the long lines we began with.

- Cabin...kind-of new bordello in appearance, but cute too..spacious and good bathroom.

- 'Butler'...a joke. Had to run to restaurant most of the time to get milk for coffee and usually had to keep asking for the coffee for the coffee maker. I think the idea of a butler service (which we have had on other liners) is wonderful, but these employees need to be trained. The function of our butler, as best as we could tell, was to deliver the goodies at the end of the afternoon.

Cabin Review

Obstructed Oceanview

We had a 'suite' which was very comfortable. Not sure about the plastic chairs around the table...but at least there was a table and chairs. The storage was very good and the bath very good.

Has anyone else turned their little 'sofa' at an angle so you can sit without feeling you are shoved against the wall? It works and make the room much more inviting.
