This was only our 2nd time cruising the first being around the Caribbean This was by far better. It is a very basic ship being it is converted from a ferry so could do with a bit of updating but overall kept spotlessly clean and staff bent over backwards for you. The pool area was very small as the last ship we were on had plenty of sunbeds, slides and Jacuzzis even though that was not a much bigger ship (only held 2,000 passengers) but you can only put this down to the size of the ship there is only so much you can do. Apart from that could not find fault anywhere else All inclusive package a bargain. Staff throughout really good cabin cleaning( William) brilliant, restaurant staff and all round cleaning of public areas etc. The entertainment also really good cruise director Ross and assistant Tony really hands on and good entertainers I personally preferred the shows that were laid on by the entertainment staff rather than the guests and Ross even does his own show Really well done. Would I visit again? Most definitely
