Good value for money great way to travel

Sail Date: November 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Genoa

We read all the negative comments/reviews after booking we just though most people only write poor rather than good reviews this has taken me 3 months to write now, the flights were with BA great, transfers good, booking in good ,cabin was a great size with balcony (free Upgrade) cleaned 3 times per day, mini bar. TV with a news channel in English we thought this was poor as there were lots of other foreign channel with other TV shows on not saying i watch TV all day but its nice to have something to watch. they did have films to pay for on demand.

food lots of choice if you wanted cafe/buffet food or restaurant your choice, they always had a good mix of salads, fruit, pizza, pasta, chips & burgers then a daily special good to try when you have already paid for in advance, several bars all samey really. a disco if required great pools in & outdoor Jacuzzis good waitress service

now to my disappointments entertainment quite tacky, if you haven't taken up the More expensive drinks package then a service charge is added to everything you buy but i think if you don't drink too much you are still better off paying as you go, there is a free 24hour tea/coffee fruit tea water station in the buffet area in melamine cups i would take a china mug with you if your as fussy as me or borrow a cup from the restaurant. they come round wanting to take your photo all the time i think they got the idea when i scowled at the camera man several times,

bit of advise always do your homework on the ports that you are visiting £8 per port transfers per person can add up when sometimes you can get off the ship and walk to the bus stop and get the bus for £3 return. we walked on a few. nice to be on land, it was a nice relaxing holiday visiting some lovely ports make the most you time away, didn't meet up with many British on board but if you like to be left alone & do your own thing this is the trip for you, i have only traveled on British run ships before and i did miss chatting to people on board & the entertainment there are also compulsory gratuities approx £40 per week, overall i would say i was happy with our holiday & service 8/10 Less
