we had the ROYAL SUITE #702. right up at the front of the ship.

it was a BEAUTIFUL room. lots of space, very comfortable (during the day ONLY). at night every time the ship went up in down in the water we heard what sounded like a refrigerator being thrown down a stairwell (the nights at sea). ear plugs helped diminish the noise enough to sleep.

Each morning that we would arrive into a port (about 5am'ish') we would hear the anchor falling into the water with its heavy chain behind it. NO NEED FOR AN ALARM CLOCK!!!! IT SOUNDED LIKE WE WERE BEING BOMBED!!! this would happen 4 or 5 times at each port.

just an absolute terrible place to put the luxury cabins!!!!

The food was not as good as we expected. desserts, pastries & ANYTHING chocolate - were poor quality.

the chocolate ice cream them served was ZERO CALORIE and came in a container, other ice creams where made on ship. ZERO CALORIE on a vacation??????

specialty restaurants:

le champagne - we think it is overrated.

la terrazza - we didn't care for it.

the grill - guests cook their own food at the table. i did not go on vacation to cook for m entertainment - exact same show we saw on a previous cruise. (editor's note: cruise ship shows typically are run for two years at least, before being replaced.) the cruise line owners have a charity foundation and early on in the voyage they take the liberty to charge your shipboard account for a donation to their foundation. they leave a brochure in your cabin informing you about the foundation and then state if you do not want to make a donation please see the reception desk to make an adjustment. this happened on our last voyage as well. we have traveled on silver seas before and greatly enjoyed it! this was a great disappointment! if it were not for the staff and the people we met we would have disembarked and found our own way home! just an absolute disappointment!!!! as a guest you can tell that the management just does not care!
