Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2014
Cabin:

We were on the departure from Las Palmas on 1st February.

I had booked just after Christmas and only then started reading some of the reviews – big mistake! In the event we had a great week with virtually no problems at all. We were blessed with fine weather nearly all the time.

The staff on board really made the trip,they were the best I have experienced on any cruise,and just could not do enough for you. We eat every night (excep one)tin the Meridien restaurant and had good food and excellent service. I said to the maitre d' on the first night that we would like a table for 2 and he kept the same one for us every night . We ate one night in Mistrals and the food was superb- the best meal I have had for a long time. We had breakfast in the Lido and this was fine but it did get busy at certain times. I thought the food generally compared well with P&O (Oriana,Ventura and Azura). A good deal(which you buy on board)is the Wine Package where you get 5 bottles of very reasonable wine for £59.
