Fantastic fiftieth, frolics and fun !!!!

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

Booked this Cruise ten months before my 50th birthday. Long time to wait,I know. So, was it worth it ? Yes,yes and thrice yes !
Embarkation at Venice ??? umm lets pass that by. Got there in the end and that's all that matters.
Entertainment on board- staff go over board to make you have a great time. (not literally this is) Key players for us were Natalie, Enrica, Chris and Abel,not forgetting Gio the 'no snooze no loose' bingo caller. Their energy was matched by our enthusiasm. If anyone remembers team one in the Quest - fantastic. I loved being team leader and you lot did me proud. The gang put a variety of entertainment on to suit all - boy do they work hard ! Thanks to Chris for letting me win ' Finish the lyrics' - had to get that umbrella.
Only negative was Johnny Rockets - too greasy and no entertainment - sorry but true !
Excursions were superbly organised considering the amount of folk. Mind out though for old American women who feel the need to queue hop. More Just say NO !
Tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area. Pompeii great, Pisa wow ! Do Dubrovnik on your own. Ten euros in taxi so don't get the shuttle.
We were very lucky with the chappy who made our room up each day. Top class towel animals, unlike our friends who only got a snake. We went to the towel demonstration one afternoon and they were hoping he was there. No luck though - next day same old snake.
Apologies to all of those who couldn't quite understand the British songs and sense of humour.
We had fun, a laugh, sang our hearts out, tried our best, won competitions - safe to say we saw, we went we played conkers ! Great way to celebrate my 50th !!!!! Less

Cabin review: E17256 Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Our cabin was a basic deck seven balcony. It's an old ship so what do you expect and well worth the money . Was very very clean and cabin personal looked after you. No complaints. Take your own toiletries and shower hat. Bottled water not complimentary.

Did not get off as too far to Rome and you can not do Rome in one day. Going back next year for a longer stay.
