Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2008
Cabin: Balcony

We hired a car from Gatwick to Dover. When we arrived there was a lot of people offloading bags from buses, we were approached by a man who arranged for our bags to be sent through and for transport to collect us after returning the car. When we joined the queue to get onboard, we were surprised how quickly we got through(as the computers were not working).

Once onboard we were offered lunch, and asked to wait in the public areas until the cabins were all ready. This did not take too long and some of our bags were also there, all of the bags arrived within a couple of hours. We explored the ship and yes it is pink, but it grows on you and becomes very relaxing.

The cabin has plenty of room for the varied clothing we felt we may need. Our steward was Junior who was on the ball and seemed to appear if we wanted to ask something of him. The cabin was cleaned to a high standard daily, we also ended up with our own zoo as we gained 11 towel animals.
