Sail Date: May 2014

We and our travel companions have now completed our seventh cruise, so probably in the eyes of many, we are mere novices. However, to begin, the destinations were not our favorite, but hey, we just wanted a cheeky seven day cruise that was a sailaway.

The Ship: hugely understaffed, we had any-time dining, which proved to be no-time dining, turn up, given a bleep, told 30 minutes, go back after 45 minutes, told at least another 30+ minutes. Gave up and went to 'Cattle Club Dining' (Horizon Court). Not a good start.....

We prefer to enjoy breakfast in one of the main restaurants, where one can enjoy a more sedate and serene dining experience, upon arrival at said restaurant, queues snaking up the stairs. Hey Ho, back to 'Cattle Club Dining' (Horizon Court). Not a good start.....
