We had not been on a 2 week cruise before so were a little anxious if we would enjoy it. We shouldn't have worried - it was brilliant, the entertainment was excellent, there was something for everyone, the entertainers came and went and there was wonderful variety including a Jersey Boys tribute, Tim Kominski a great comedian and Harry O' Flanagan, an Irish singer & comedian + many others!
We loved Ariel in the piano bar and thought the showband was second to none - we would have liked to have seen more of them.
The food was excellent - we preferred the Venetian at night but enjoyed others too.
The cruise director was fantastic, great sense of humour and pitched everything just right. The staff were all great particularly as this was around the time of the typhoon in the Philippines & many of them were of Phillipino origin - I don't know how they coped, many of them did not know if their families were alive or not - so not surprising they weren't laughing & joking.
All the staff were helpful & friendly without being obtrusive - all in all a fantastic cruise!!
