I really don't know where to begin, yes the flight over was good on the Dreamliner but when the dinner is served they concentrated more on making sure the wine was served than getting everyone's dinner out. Montego Bay Jamaica is awful ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, the brochure description and travel agent recommendations to celebrate a special birthday. Dreamliner flight was fine, except for the poor entertainment offer which made the 9 hour flight ... Read more

If you're looking to reenact scenes from "Carry on Sailing", then this is the ship for you. Our room was a decent size (outside plus), but resembled something from the 1970's, with dark wood panelling and floral carpet ... Read more
