Sail Date: Nov 2021
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

I did not selected this cruise. It was chosen by my partner and I respected his decision. The ship is beautiful and the staff was very helpful. Due to the Pandemic, the ship had only 1,300 passengers while their capacity is almost 4,000.

The dining rooms were great but not the food. Being a seafood fan I expected shrimps, lobster and crabs but was disappointed. Crabs were never an option on the dinning menu. Lobster was an option but had to pay $30.00 and was not worth. Shrimps were tiny; four as appetizer and eight as main dinner.

The room w the balcony was tiny and the TV was off center w the couch and bed.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

The cabin was OK but had several faults. Unlike other cruise lines, the TV was not in front of the bed or the couch. Thus, we had to watch the TV looking sideways (right). The bathroom is tiny compared w other cruise lines and the sink is next to a wall on it's right side. Thus, right handed people have issues even brushing their teeth. The balcony was huge and plenty of space to even have a party w other guests. Closet space was OK.

Chose by my partner, not by me.
