Sail Date: Feb 2013
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

I travelled with my husband and we are in our mid forties and our 20 year old daughter. We took the free upgrade to a Virgin flight, which meant we had to collect our luggage at the airport but this was not a problem. It was loaded on to the coach at the airport and delivered to our room within a short while. We did have a delay at Gatwick due to a technical fault and didn't arrive until after 6pm. It was a good service provid by Virgin with a huge choice of films and free drinks throughout the flight. There was no queue at the embarkation hut and within minutes we were in our cabin.

We had a balcony cabin with a separate dressing area with plenty of space for clothes for the 3 of us. We had bunk beds and would have preferred a roll away bed but it was ok. The bathroom was small but functional and we always had hot water day or night. You can use the blue towels for the pool and take them off the ship to the beach.

On the first night there is a welcome BBQ on deck with a wide choice of meats, salads and desserts. We had to take time out to attend the mandatory drill but we were expecting this. Drinks were surprisingly realistically priced with a pint of beer costing £3.45 and a J20 was £2.00 so definitely comparable to pub prices in the UK.
