Transatlantic excellence

Sail Date: April 2011
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Miami
We took the relocation cruise from Miami to Southamoton in April- 13 nights of very good company, food, entertainment and facilities. The ship is only one year old and is all shiny and new with lots of chrome and glass; very modern & tasteful, but if you like traditional wood panelling etc. this is not going to suit. The food in the self-service and the main didning room was of a high standard and the only criticism would be that it is not always very hot by the time it arrives. Service was excellent, but perhaps some musical background would have been nice. Bars were plentiful and the Martini bar is great fun- the cocktail-making is a real show! Drinks measures did seem to vary bar to bar, so pick the generous one!Covered pool & health food bar a real plus.

Cabins are lovely, very good design features.

Ports of call were good, particularly the countryside of the Azores - worth a holiday visit if you like nature and scenery.

Shows were OK but would have More liked more after dinner for late sitting rather than before which tends to leave you at a loose end late evening.

Overall a lovely ship, excellent crew and facilities - thoroughly recommended. Less
