Picked this cruise because it seemed to be the right length of time to see some things and enjoy the ship. The ship was new and we got a great price.

Everything about this cruise went seamlessly from embarkation to debarkation. The ship is absolutely beautiful. So much thought has gone into the decor, particularly as you walk towards Eden on board the ship.

The restaurants were all very good. We were Aqua Class so mostly had dinner time meals at Blu. All of the staff we dealt with there were wonderful. Roger was our waiter and Anton was our assistant. We quickly got to know both of them and them us. We just let Roger order for us as he knew which menu items were the best each day on the ever changing menu including starters (sometimes more than 1), main course and dessert. There were two sommeliers, Ernesto and Anastasia, in this restaurant who paired all of our wine to the meals and courses we were eating. We were really spoiled (I think in part because we really like food and wine and conveyed that to our waiter and sommeliers). We also had wonderful experience with Emilia as our server although we were seated in her section less often. She convinced us to try and share between us 3 desserts and she was not wrong on how wonderful they were. Our maitre'd Ljiljana ("Lili") and our hostess at Blu, Zorem, were also so kind and thoughtful. We did not meet Umesh, the Chef at Blu, but his menus and food were incredible.

Cabin Review

Bright cabin, wonderful shower, very comfortable bed. Balcony (not a true balcony) very comfortable. Kept the window down most of the time, including at night while sleeping to enjoy the view during the night and upon waking up in the morning along with the sounds of the water.

Replenished daily and more often if required. Stateroom Attendant, Nasveeta, a very wonderful person. If we needed something or had a question, it was dealt with in minutes!
