Pools too small very crowded, hot tubs not hot at all,plus chairs by the pool very scarce. The information given by the cruise director was very often conflicting to what was printed in the daily planner in the room. Much of the information in regards to excursions was inconsistent which caused unnecessary aggravation and lost time trying to explore ports. Shuttle buses told to be available at port and were not, times between shuttle and destinations were also incorrect.

The dining room food was great selection sometimes lukewarm. Waitstaff sometimes seemed overwhelmed.

My cabin was very roomy and always clean, but never received body soap,good thing we had hand soap. This is the consensus we got from other people at the pool and at our dining table.

Entertainment was fair, only one contest at poolside on the first day at sea,other 2 days nothing. Shows at night not Broadway by any means, but I had been told that on European cruises they don't invest the money on shows because of the long day excursions. But having passengers volunteer to karaoke stars and perform for the last night show was a little lame.

don't want this to be all negative, I had a great trip of a lifetime, ports of calls were just beautiful and the ship was like coming back home at night after a full day and having everyone wait on you till bedtime. Great way to see Europe!

Cabin Review

Cabin 7393
Plenty of closet space, cabin very roomy, bathroom also quite roomy as cruise ship bathrooms go. We were next to crew storage and it was very quite.
