Cabin: Twin Inside

Just completed a Car'bean cruise on the Braemar, the flights both ways were pretty good with Monarch but have flown charter with F/O before and think Tui was much better particularly the in flight food.

The cruise itself was great, embarkation at Manchester and Barbados very good, ports good but Cuba a little dissapointing not being at Havana, but not a major issue. The food excellent and service good on most occasions but if eating in the Palms cafe at night (outside) the new "Grill " section which has taken over most of the outside of that area seems to take priority over outside Palms Cafe. The extra £20 you pay for "The Grill" seems to over ride the Palms outside service. (nothing effected inside). Many of us like to eat outside at night in the warm. We had to clear our own tables as plates etc were mounting up., go and find waiters for various needs, was a bit of a continuous theme. We know its self service but normal Palms service it was not.

There didn't seem to many takers for the grill and waiters and chefs were stood about on the occasions we were outside. Service generally very good. Cabin cleanliness excellent, staff always pleasant and helpful. The entertainment was the best we've seen for years, (both artists and show group )
