As the ship had an outbreak of the novo virus the previous week when it reached Southampton it had to have a deep clean which no one minded but the chaos to board was dreadful.
The ship had a refit earlier this year but except for some of the new carpets, a new 'concrete mattress' and a flat screen television the in stateroom nothing much looked different. The furniture in the staterooms were dated and mostly scratched.
The daytime activities on sea days were very poor. The evening shows had excellent guest performers . The parade on the royal promenade was poor compared to the other ships we've been on.There was only one ice show over the two weeks as compared to two again on other ships.
