Sail Date: Oct 2011
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

This was a good way to get home and see some places I had never seen for less than a one way business airfare.

I enjoyed the many sea days but didn't find any ports I wanted to go back to.

Food and service was good, excellent most of the time. The chef, Jock, was great, and so patient.His cooking demos were a highlight.I also enjoyed meeting the onboard florist.Fascinating and so modest.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Cabin DA

This cabin was a big mistake. I chose it for the view out the front of the ship, and I certainly got that. Unfortunately it was right above the Mondrian lounge so I got all the noise. I figured I could cope with 2 shows a night but I did not factor in all the rehearsals. It should be sold with a warning. Also had to fight for decent curtains. The cabin next door had the same problems and ended up with a blackout cloth arrangement that the steward put up [tied to the window]and took down. I also had to fight for a makeup mirror. I think they bought me one in Hilo.

The cabin layout is ideal for one person. It would be very tight for any more.
