Great Cruise but what about the toiletries!

Sail Date: August 2009
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Southampton

Wow what a fantastic start to our cruise, luggage dealt with very easily and was - onboard in no time at all. Got to our stateroom and was disappointed that room was not as described (two queensize beds) but one queensize and a pull out sofa but was comfortable enough.

The children were thoroughly entertained on the ship and the activities are fantastic. We have a child who is autistic and we had no worries at all because he was in very good hands in the children's club - big thanks to Trevor!

The only thing felt was wrong is that there was not a toiletry pack in the bathroom. There was handsoap and shampoo in a dispenser but had to ask for shower cap which attendant was happy to get. However on a ship of this rating really expected these extras to be in the room.

The only other small niggle we had was with the photographer who lost some of our photos - they weren't too good at helping us but I suppose it saved us some money!

Apart from More that everything was really good - would definitely go again and would recommend it to anyone of any age because it seemed there was something for everyone.

Happy cruising Less

Fantastic cabin - we could see the Captain and First Mate sail the ship from the balcony and could wave to them.
