Embarkation was quick, easy and efficient. DH has had a stroke which left him with very poor balance. One look at his cane and staff rushed to his aid, took us quickly through the formalities and straight onto the ship.
The cabin was small but well organised. I was surprised by the size of the window - perfect for watching the waves towering above us. Did I mention 100mph winds and considerable rocking and rolling on our sea days!
The crew were wonderful, friendly, always helpful. At one time when it was rough it took two of them holding tight to DH to get him through the Buffet. Always service with a smile.
Our cabin 5520 was a refuge from all the noisy public places. The beds were very comfortable but the two chairs were hard and ugly. I think on other cruises we have had small comfortable chairs.
I woke up at 3 a.m. every night because of some banging noise. It might have been the rough weather, but I wondered if that was when they cleaned the Casino above us.
