Independance to the Canaries- Fanatastic time by all of Us

Sail Date: October 2009
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Southampton

We travelled to the port left home at and were on the ship by 11.45am, it doesn't get much better than that.

The weather was fabulous for the whole 11 days, it was better than the cruise we went on in June to the Med.

We saw loads of dolphins on our first sea day.

We did my time dining we had a lovely table for all 10 of us on Deck 5 and we had the same wait staff every night. Our waiter Godfredo and Charles were brilliant and good fun aswell. The steaks were also perfectly cooked although sometimes still a bit tough. The windjammer was busy especially on sea days but the staff all did their best to keep tables flowing. The bistro 30 on sea days was great.

We had a balcony cabin on Deck 8, that we booked as a guarantee, it was a little further forward than I would normally book, but it was very convienient.

Our stateroom attendant Sergio was also one of the best we had ever had.

We did the skating lesson and More thought the staff were great.

We didn't particularly enjoy the theatre shows, but I guess you cannot please such a wide audience all of the time.

We all did our own thing at all the ports of call, most of us didn't particpate in the Bingo.

All in All a very enjoyable holiday. Less

Cabin review: D28520 Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Prefer not to have a balcony next to smokers on both sides which restricted our enjoyment.
