First time cruisers now hooked

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Palma de Mallorca

for a first time cruise we selected the island escape due to it being more informal and relaxed.

not knowing what to expect we were more than delighted with our first cruise, so delighted we booked again for the island escape within 2 days of getting home, but for 2 weeks next time!

travelling with 2 children we were in a 4 berth cabin, yes it is a it cramped but you just make do and we managed with no problems.

staff were great and nothing was too much trouble, destinations were great

being a smaller ship it felt really friendly and you could stop for a chat with anyone and they always found the time for a natter.

very informal, no dressing up for dinner and being all inclusive you don't have to worry about how much your kids are spending on cokes etc.

food was very good and the themed nights were great.

entertainment was really good and kept the kids and us entertained for hours at nights.

all in all one of the More best holidays we have had and cant wait till next year! Less
