To cruise or not to cruise
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
So here's our experience, what I loved :
The shore excursions, loved Izmir( Ephesus), Dubrovnik, Split, Athens.
The evening entertainment.World class acrobatics, musicals etc.
The fitness centre and the running track, where else can you exercise with views like Venice passing by? magical.
Our son loved the kids club.
We slept so well on the ship ( I was told by the staff, that this was due to More the constant rocking movement)
What I didn't like:
The crowd !! 2000 people seemed to converge into the pool area, crazy! two small pools, standing room only!Witnessed people fighting over lounge chairs. The main dining room was so crowded, again people fought over tables and chairs!We ended up going on the specialty restaurants to escape the crowd.
The long sea days, seemed to drag on. I felt nauseous the whole day,reading made it worse. Could not go to the spa area ( front of the ship), it was worse there.The patch made me drowsy, the ginger tablets helped with the nausea.
Would we go again? I am not sure, maybe not, a river cruise maybe.
By the way, my husband did not enjoy the cruise as much I he thought he would. He doesn't normally get sea sickness, but he felt dizzy on those sea days too!
We were both glad to finish the cruise. Some lovely memories there. I must add that the staff on the ship worked so hard ( 9 months straight, with no days off!), those extra tips meant a lot to them!!They were all fantastic! Less
Cabin review: BA Mid-Ship Balcony
Mid ship with balcony. Deck 11. Choose wisely some of these rooms are underneath the kids club (deck 12). Spacious enough, with enough storage room. Balcony is good. Somewhere quiet to go to. Happy with bathroom, with a bathtub!Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
