Sail Date: Dec 2011
Cabin: Balcony

The decor of the ship is stunning and the quality of service on the trip, whether in our room, for meals, whether formal or otherwise and for excursions and entertainment were all quite outstanding. We thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed ourselves and made a number of new friends from far and wide.

HOWEVER, there was one aspect which was completely unacceptable - the embarkation and disembarkation arrangements. In Miami we had to wait for over an hour after the published time to board the coach taking us to the ship and, once on the quay, the boarding clearance arrangements were akin to what I imagine it must be like waiting for the start of a West End department store sale (and not helped afterwards by the boarding photograph being posed next to a very tatty and peeling lifebelt!).

Once on board, however, everything was fine and very enjoyable, as stated above, UNTIL it was time to disembark.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

A2 cabin - stateroom with glass balcony. Very adequate but certainly not airy. Well designed. Plenty of storage space. superb bathroom. Very clean and well kept. All furnishings good. Kingsize double bed - 6 foot. All-in-all very happy with it.
