Brilliant Cruise

Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Southampton
Cannot understand any negative reviews. Apart from a few small issues there is nothing really to complain about ! The ship (including our cabin) was very clean. Food - we ate at the 8.30 seating and couldn't fault it all. Our waiters were outstanding - nothing was too much trouble. We also ate in both dining rooms for breakfast and sometimes Windjammer, again brilliant selection. We all loved the coffee shop in the promenade for sandwhiches, pizzas cakes etc (have to mention the coffee was lovely ! ), my daughter ate in Johnny Rockets, for a small cover charge, and said this was very good. We tried all the bars, they were all lovely, depending on whether you fancied a classy champagne bar or an English pub ! Cocktails were nice and reasonably priced, wine was extortionately priced though ! Our group also used room service quite a lot which was excellent !

Shows - went to quite a few of the shows, the Bee Gees was outstanding as was the hypnotist. The singing and dancing shows More were good too. The final show was, however, disappointing. My Daughter went to the ice show which she said was really good. I think we took advantage of most of the facilities onboard - golf, rock climbing, ice skating, pool, table tennis, gym, kids clubs ... There really is something for everyone ! Was great for us as we travelled in a group of 9 ages ranging from 12 to mid 70s.

The shops/shopping events on board were good, reasonably good prices.

Ports of call - shuttle services very poor unless you booked the trips through the cruise (which were very expensive). However, very well organised getting on /off the ship.

Kids clubs - excellent, always plenty to do, hardly saw the children !

Staff on board in general very friendly. The only issue we had was with our free drinks package which was for less than we had been told. Guest services were not helpful with this but I have emailed RCI on our return.

All in all, a really great holiday - from the ease of checking in (not having to fly !), great overall service and attention to detail, fab food and activities, lovely ports of call and meeting lovely new friends. Would definitely recommend. Less

Cabin review: 8345

Cabins quite small (myself, my husband and 12 year old ), but plenty of storage space and very quiet and dark !

Used a taxi to get into town as although cruise said there would be shuttles ... None were available

Got the hop on hop off bus for 15euros ... Well worth the money a lot cheaper than with cruise ... Lovely city !

Very expensive for what we got ... Wouldn't do it again

Tendered but very efficient, stunning port .... My favourite ! Straight off the boat into a beautiful little town.
