Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Southampton

This was the first time we had been on an Adult only cruise and the difference has persuaded us that this is the way to go. It was only the second time we had sailed with P&O (the last one was on the Ventura in 2009) being regular Thomson cruisers in the past. We had 5 formal nights, 5 smart nights and 10 casual nights, and it was lovely not to feel overdressed, as most of the other passengers followed the dress code.

You may wonder why I have put in two cabin numbers, well.........E182 is on the back of the ship, and one morning we woke up and the balcony was covered in soot.....they cleaned it up, but it was still a mess, so they kindly moved us to C199. Both cabins were the same with a sofa, table and a king sized bed......the balcony on E182 was far bigger than the one on C199

The ship itself was lovely, although ready for the refit it was due to have on our return......we used to play "where will the bucket be today" as there were leaks springing up all over More the place in the public areas, but always from above not below!!!!!! The staff were all fantastic, friendly and helpful, and the food was fabulous, in both the Self service and the main restaurant, and the service was brilliant too. We also joined a dancing class, and with the help of the fantastic Eamon and Anna both my husband and I can now do the basic Foxtrot, Quickstep, Waltz, and the Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, and Jive.....we really enjoyed it and are looking to carry on now that we are home.
