For the first time, I took my son and his 2 kids. We got 2 rooms.

Very tasty and served professionally from our waiter and ass't.

Very comfortable and the air cond. worked great, much better than my son's outside cabin which was poorly cooled.

The pool area was way too crowded, finding a lounge chair was difficult.

The ports were outstanding and the beaches were great so we stayed there instead.

a platinum member and only one major issue bothered me but thankfully was resolved by the ass't maitri D'. On the day of sailing I went down to the front dining room at 3PM to see where my table was since where a family of 5 including 2 very young children.ages 4 and 5. A tall officer in a white uniform told me you got a good table in the rear dining room close to the window. I told him my cabin as well as my son's cabin is forward, why not the mid dining room, his reply well it's not really that forward. At dinner time, I saw my table it was a booth for 4 smack against a wall, no view of any window and get this, a chair was put at the outside of the table where the staff walks through as well as the guests for the 5th person of my party. The nerve of this officer to knowingly deceive as well as create a hazard for my grandchild who was told to sit there. My wife immediately looked for the maittri D' who changed the table and apologized for this unfortunate situation. May I say, I cruised on some of the finest liners over 40 odd years, and the wait team of MR. M and his assit Erwin was the most professional and concerned servers not only to me but to my son and his 2 kids. The food was excellent, even the carvings at the buffet were top quality, especially the strip loin of beef, and the fresh turkey off the bone with it's tasty stuffing. The 2 production shows were great and the generally staff very friendly. I'm booked on the same cruise this fall, followed up by 7 weekly cruises within the coming year.
