The Best

Sail Date: February 2012
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Southampton
Let start with day one, yes we were made to wait in Southampton 7 hours, but that was because 450 people on the previous sailing got ill not because the ship was not clean but because it was brought in from outside when the passengers got off, so they were cleaning so the next 4000 passenger did not get ill, and to be fare there we only a few people that got the virus on our trip. previous review make out the the ship was full of sick people not true.

don't be put off by the negative review this ship is amazing and a total joy to be on, rooms very good standard entertainment good, joff was great and the sports team were great, my daughter is 11 and she went onto the wall and flowrider and the staff did not rush her and showed her how to do it.

The children's club are the best you will every find, they have everything in the children's room, and do load of activities with them, my daughter always enjoyed kids club.

Food wow it was amazing, the winjammer More restaurant has food from all over the world, or you can have roast every day burger salads traditional English fare, its great and always hot and plenty of it, also cater for veggies well always plenty of veg dishes.

fine dinning, totally spoilt its amazing and cooked to perfection, and the waiting staff cannot do enough for you.

please if you want a total wow holiday book to go on this cruise, its wonderful Less
