I chose this cruise for my birthday. I was not disappointed at all. Living in California, it's a 55 minute flight into lax/ lgb. The bus took us right to the porters. Check in was a breeze.
We had balcony aft which was a standard balcony. Our cabin steward was always around but never in the way. Always an earshot away.
The food was the best mdr I had eaten in any cruise I've been on. The staff is excellent and everyone was friendly.
