First Time Cruisers - Taynuilt, Argyll.

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Southampton
Stayed night before in Grand harbour hotel,lovely place but didn't really enjoy the early alarm call- 01-10am by the fire alarm !! but hey the two hours outside and in the Holiday Inn you got to meet plenty of people !!

Accommadaion inside cabin A deck.Very nice,plenty storage and cabin steward, Martino was excellent,very attentive and hard working.

Food was amazing and we went for Freedom Dining ,met another 3 couples on first night and that was us for the rest of the cruise,great company and what a laugh,thankyou all !!

Entertainment was excellent,WestEnd Men,comedians the disco!! and all other entertainers onboard.Had heard a lot of negative comments about the ship but as far as myself and wife were concerned, you will never please all the people all of the time !! Had a fantastic time and can't wait to book the next one. If you've not tried it do it, you won't regret it, its what you make it, isn't it peeps !! Less
