Better than expected.

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Africa
Embarkation: Other
We took this cruise from Sharm El Sheikh on the 21st February.The ports we called at were industrial but a gateway to the sights.
The ship was in the middle of a refurbishment which fortunately didn't interfere with our enjoyment.The sports deck and some cabins were out of action.We had chosen a deluxe cabin which had been refurbed.Very comfortable,clean and had a full size bath although the water was a yellowish colour.
All the staff were excellent,friendly and polite.Never any problems getting drinks which were good quality.
.Sunbeds were in demand on sea days so if you wanted one you would need to be an early bird.I did see staff removing towels if beds had been reserved then unused for some time.
Entertainment was excellent.The 'house band' Mitch and the Peakles were very easy to listen too.Comedienne was great and some of the waiting staff had hidden talents.Casino small but friendly.
The buffet restaurant served very good quality food and were very strict on More hygiene.Several themed nights and delicious roast beef and yorkshire puddings!Plates cleared away very quickly.
Altogether the atmosphere on the ship was friendly and jovial.We enjoyed. Less
