We stayed on the Ventura so just thought I would write a review since we were massively impressed with our first time cruising, so here are some tips:

When it comes to Gratuities(Tips) you automatically pay a fee a day, we took this off, you just go to the reception and ask to have them removed, that way you can tip who you want to tip throughout your cruise, we did this and ended up tipping more but that way we knew the staff got them.

When you arrive go straight to the Waterside Café or Beachside all on deck 15 as you can have food straight away, especially if you had been waiting a long time to Embark.

The restaurants that are inclusive are Cinnamon and Safron, they serve the exact same menu and is inclusive of your all inclusive cruise. Could not fault the food at all!

They serve Breakfast at Saffron and Cinnamon, then a buffet breakfast in waterside so you can help yourself. Then at dinner it is a 3 course meal and tea it is a 5 course meal. Forgot to mention the hot pizzas and afternoon tea in the waterside.

Shows were fab and you don't need to book, they run twice in one evening.

The maids are spot on, ours did our room 3 times a day, they constantly check for dirty towels.

Overall it was amazing, going on my honeymoon in 5 months, were trying the Oasis of the Seas, Royal Carribean!
