We checked in at Marmaris after a coach journey from Dalaman. The check in was quick and efficient. We were then shown to our cabin, took part in the boat drill, then had a lovel welcome in the Meridian Restaurant from our waiter from last year, Renaldo, as well as Dui and August from previous years.
The entertainment was superb, what talented performers and singers, led by the Cruise Director on the first week, Gavin, whom we had met on previous cruises.
Our friends were celebrating their golden wedding in a few weeks time and thanks to Susie, the lovely friendly social hostess, we sat at the Captain's table on the Gala Night, what a wonderful evening we had.
We loved the Horizons Bar and Anthony ensured we were well catered for both in the bar and on deck during the day.
The food was excellent, the only complaint we could make was that the coffee in the Meridian Restaurant at breakfast was slightly cold. We mentioned this to Renaldo on our second week and the Head Waiter then provided us with a pot of hot milk - what a difference! Our advice is if you are not happy about something, however trivial, speak to someone.
A great cruise, beautiful scenery and interesting ports.
