First Cruise

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
Flight on the Dreamliner was very comfortable albeit long (can't be avoided) ship looked aging but comfortable, room was a little on the small side, the first thing I noticed was how nice the crew were, as for food a bit hit and miss breakfast was by far the best meal, entertainment was really very good and the dream got talent was a brilliant show.

Downside was I booked the tours prior to traveling not a good idea can save a fortune, if you just wait until the day a walk down to the quayside and you'll get the same trips for a fraction of the price IE one trip Thomson wanted £46 each, quayside £26 for both of us, but if your not back on time the ship will go without you where as on the Thomson tour they will wait be warned.

Drinks package at £225pp pw that excludes coffee or soft drinks and if you wanted premium drink the was further cost, total madness

Dress code was in place but many ignored it.

Itinerary was changed due to the More trade winds a little high for this time of the year a small disappointment but love it all the same, will book another cruise but not yet.

A must do for those whom are in two minds. Less

Cabin review: DE

Small and a restrictive view from the window, but lets face it how long are you in it with your eyes open
