Nice, but . . .: SeaDream I Cruise Review by ridpath

Nice, but . . .
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
After these hick-ups, things started to settle down.
To say it was "luxury" is a stretch. The cabins are dated and our bathroom sink finish was cracked. Additionally, our toilet struggled throughout the trip More (most times unable to even flush urine), and finally gave out a couple of days before the end of the cruise.
Clearly, maintenance was lacking on this "luxury" liner.
The service was OUTSTANDING, and the staff deserves special recognition.
Food was hit and miss. First night was great. Another night was "Indian Night"(???) Another night I had a prime rib-eye that was like no prime I had ever seen/tasted, and couldn't eat it (I did not complain, but they were genuinely concerned, and asked if they could bring me something else, to which I thanked them, but declined). Another night was an 8-course "elegantly sized" dinner, and it was a true winner.
My favorite stops were Dubrovnik, Rovinj, and Venice. Destinations should have been more efficiently planned so that we wouldn't have had to stop in Trieste for fuel, and instead could have had more time in Venice (7:00 pm Venice as our final destination?).
Overall, probably will not recommend due to inexcusable maintenance lapses. Less
