We are foodies and really enjoyed Wonderland (both the service and the food were outstanding) and Jamie's (we're now addicted to the Taglietelle Bolognese)! Overall it was a good cruise. The ship was very clean and had a variety of activities on sea days to keep us busy. The port presentations, though, were geared towards shopping; no other activities available in port were mentioned. I'd like to see more about attractions, museums, cultural activities, etc. The food ranged from mediocre (Solarium Bistro, Main Dining Room, room service) to very good (usually in a fee-added restaurant). Of special note, other than the croissants, the pastries were generally bad, and the chocolate-frosted donuts were absolutely vile, too much baking powder and topped with a waxy, fake-chocolate blend -- or at least tasted like it. Room service coffee was acceptable, though for some reason the kitchen staff **always** put halfnhalf into a wine glass instead of a pourable creamer, which was messy to clean up after. Overall, the desserts seemed made for looks rather than taste -- the "Royal Chocolate Cake" was particularly disappointing. I'd also like to see an interactive ship's map/diagram added to the cruise TV channel. Or even a hard copy...

Don't Miss Wonderland or Jamie's!

Cabin Review

Grand Suite - 1 Bedroom
Cabin GS
The suite was very clean, and spacious enough for two people. King-size bed, sofa, coffee table with two dining chairs, dry bar, roomy balcony with two regular chairs and two loungers, bathroom larger than our home one with a shower/tub combination and double vanity. The shower was a little weird, though -- both in its controls and the fact that only half of the shower was covered by a glass shield. We flooded the bathroom almost every time we showered, and, although there was a drain the floor, the floors weren't sloped to direct excess water into the drain. We wound up mopping up the water with some of the spare bath towels, and fear this made more work for our cabin steward (who did a great job, btw!).
