Stayed night before in Grand harbour hotel,lovely place but didn't really enjoy the early alarm call- 01-10am by the fire alarm !! but hey the two hours outside and in the Holiday Inn you got to meet plenty of people !!

Accommadaion inside cabin A deck.Very nice,plenty storage and cabin steward, Martino was excellent,very attentive and hard working.

Food was amazing and we went for Freedom Dining ,met another 3 couples on first night and that was us for the rest of the cruise,great company and what a laugh,thankyou all !!

Entertainment was excellent,WestEnd Men,comedians the disco!! and all other entertainers onboard.Had heard a lot of negative comments about the ship but as far as myself and wife were concerned, you will never please all the people all of the time !! Had a fantastic time and can't wait to book the next one. If you've not tried it do it, you won't regret it, its what you make it, isn't it peeps !!
