Sail Date: Aug 2011
Cabin: Concierge Class 1

I found embarkation from Southampton Port very easy and efficient, with only a small queue to enter the ship..10 minutes approx. We were greeted with a glass of bubbly wine on arrival, and the stateroom was available. suitcases arrived about two hours later.

My initial opinion of the ship was it was extremely clean but it smelled somewhat like a hospital in places. My stateroon on Deck 8 was lovely, although the corridoor near us to the nearest lifts had a public toilet smell. That really is quite off-putting and for the entire cruise it remained to be very wiffy (& not nice to come back to) Stateroom attendant was a mystery man to us for several days, so remained unintroduced.. very unlike any cruise we have been on in the past. He did however check on me some days into the cruise to say he was always there if we needed him.

I dined in the main dining room Moonlight Sonata, but also tried one of the specialist restaurants "Qsuine" as well. All very high standard of dining except for the waiters always getting the meals muddled up. (never experienced this on aany other cruise) It was at times quite amusing, my fellow Cruisers found it quite entertaining every night!

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 1

Cabin C1

Great Balcony, good chairs on balcony.

Shower very safe, one setting for water temp. and non slip flooring throughout.

Wardrobe smaller than other cruise lines. Bed very firm, and pillows of not a good condition. They could have been much better quality !!

Tea, coffee, and kettle etc. and TV was flat screenon swivel. We lost Channel 23 at

Croatia, so did not know ships position for rest of voyage!

Settee very hard to sit on.
