Sail Date: Oct 2010
Cabin: Family Penthouse with Balcony

We embarked from Venice. Arrived at the port terminal at 11:30AM, and were on board by noon. No Problem.

Our suite was beautiful, everything we expected and more. We particularly enjoyed the perk of being able to have breakfast and lunch in Cagney's. The breakfast and lunches were wonderful. We had dinner in five specialty restaurants and enjoyed each of them. We really enjoyed the French Bistro, and went there twice. Cagneys was good, and the Italian restaurant was OK, but the menu was lacking creativity. We had a dinner in our room one night from the Asian restaurant. Our butler service was outstanding that night and for the entire cruise.

We ate in the main dining room the rest of the nights, and experienced no problems. The food was good, well presented, service was good, and deserts were outstanding.

Cabin Review

Family Penthouse with Balcony

Cabin SC

Our cabin was excellent. One thing, however. The treadmills were directly above our cabin, and we heard the pounding when someone ran or trotted on a treadmill. I would suggest moving the treadmills back to where the bicyles are, and then the noises would be gone, as treadmills would be back about 20 feet.
