Sail Date: Feb 2014
Cabin:

We had 13 nights which was certainly enough. Our only other cruise was with Cunard and the difference is startling. The pressure to buy drinks, especially by the pool, was at times insolent.

The food was standard British fare, plenty of potatoes, at least two different ways every meal, well that will fill you up. Chips everywhere.

On this note, Marco Pierre White why did you lend your name to this poor excuse for an exclusive restaurant on board? With a stairwell coming out in the middle, people strolling past, and food no better than the main restaurants I cannot see why he did it. Most cruise ships have a signature restaurant which you make a booking for and pay extra and which you are happy to pay for as the food and service is special Not so here. This one was free except for a dinner surcharge and as such gave no special food or presentation. Menu read well but the presentation and cooking was ordinary. Please Marco review your involvement.

Cabin Review

Cabin was good sized although old fashioned decor. The sliding door to the balcony was better than one which opens out. Appreciated the large bathroom.
