We chose this for it being all inclusive - drinks, flights, shuttle, and gratuities. We also loved that we could do a back to back cruise on the same ship. You didn't have to disembark and then go back on. The turn over day was just like ... Read more

Hi, we were two of about 25 Canadians aboard this UK oriented cruise ship. We met and made friends with some great people. The ship was very efficiently run and our only real complaint was the winds but that was not a slight to the efforts ... Read more

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
