Our initial impression was that reaching the ship and embarkation was easy and boded well for a good holiday - little did we know !
We were met at our cabin by a member of staff who was very dismissive and not particularly helpful. The cabin was well appointed and had a surprising amount of storage space. The cabin was clean.
Our meals were taken in Le Verde restaurant and to say the least the food to start with was very mediocre although this improved towards the end of the week. The food did not reach the gourmet standard promised, was obviously mass produced and lacked flavour. The portion sizes were very small and no one explained that you could order some or all of the courses. So the first night was not too bad.
Our cabin was clean and more spacious that I anticipated with plenty of storage space. Our 16 year old was travelling with us and the sofa opened out into a double bed which was put away during the day. Pleasantly surprised by the space.
Downside - the balcony was made of solid metal which meant we could not sit on the balcony and enjoy any views. If the balcony door was open then the wind whistled through the cabin and was very noisy. Despite no smoking policy our neighbours smoked and this drifted into our cabin. Although there was three of us, there was only two glasses.
