Great value option for family who like to visit new places
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
We got to stop in Istanbul which was incredible - people very friendly. Five minutes from the port you can catch a tram - head to Sultanamet - and get off at the Blue Mosque and Haggai Sophia - stunning. There is a lovely park area between these two world class buildings - local vendors sell fresh toffee which our children enjoyed. We ate in a great nomad style restaurant - local ladies are baking bread in the window - great family experience - the children got to put on traditional clothes - food good too. Last stop Valetta - again fifteen minutes off the ship takes you into the city main square. Great shopping town - best value on trip. Visit the St John's Co-Cathedral to view some of Caravaggio's best works.
WE didn't eat in any of the restaurants on the ship that had a surcharge - we simply felt that we had enough choice in the 5/6 restaurants including. Quality was really good - our children ate off the adult menus at dinner too.
Staff were really friendly and really good with the children
Our room was small - but that was because we were on a budget - so we had an inside cabin. But the housekeeping staff took the fourth bed away every morning to give us extra space. Room kept immaculate - as was the rest of the ship.
A great value holiday for us during the Easter break. Not too hot for the children to tour. We would cruise with the children again. They loved it! Less
Cabin review: I111633 Family Inside
Small room - but we are a family of four - and to be fair we thought it offered great value for money. We were in an inside cabin - which we would do again. WE didnt spend much time in the room - just for sleep.Read All Family Inside (I1) Reviews >>
