Having read reviews from fellow cruisers it's clear we all like different things. We chose this cruise because we had a stop every day. On Royal Caribbean there are two days a week at sea. The embarkation process started 2 hours before the 2 pm time we were given so were able to embark after under 30 minutes queuing.During this time we signed up to the all inclusive drinks package with the stewardess sorting it out while we stayed in the queue.
Our cabin was supplied throughout with clean bedding and towels. All the staff were polite, greeting you when passing. Our agent had incorrectly put on the first dinner sitting. This was easily changed for the second night and we sat with a delightful young Austrian couple who spoke good English.
Not many English speakers passengers and that just added to the feeling of being on holiday. We had no problem with the children or fellow passengers, mainly Italian and French. Like another reviewer said-go with the flow.
At the ports where we had to use a tender, this was well organised both ways.
The food was not up to Royal Caribbean standards but the cruise was cheaper so we were not surprised. Still very good though and served by a friendly, efficient waiter.
Entertainment in the theatre was made all the more enjoyable by the enthusiasm of the Italian passengers who were tremendously appreciative of all acts.
We had a great time!
