Like other reviewers we did consider cancelling after reading reviews. So glad we didn't, had a wonderful time. Had no problems with staff,entertainment or food. Many children on board but no problem all seemed to be having a great time, noisy but then children are. Enjoyed the shows the singers were really good and other acts eg acrobats etc although not to our taste were very good as well.
Special mention to pianist and violinist in La Cabana and also our drinking companions from Bolton thank you for the laughs we had. Met a huge number of very nice people but only one couple who moaned about really trivial things. Thanks to Mel and Miranda our dining companions.
Only problem was the trip to Rouen, not enough leisure time as the tour guide had to repeat in two languages plus the fact we were late setting off and then had to wait nearly an hour to return for the same people.
Balcony cabin 9205 really comfortable, one tip if going for more than 7 days take a few extra coat hangers if like me you will need them. Able to store large case, holdall and small case comfortably under bed.
