Sail Date: Oct 2012

Sailed from Southampton to The Caribbean on a 19 day cruise, and have I to say was very impressed with this ship, there was something is always going on! With twelve places to eat, including three main restaurants, as well as a wine bar, a fine dining restaurant by Marco Pierre White, and a dedicated family restaurant where you can dine whenever you choose, day or night. You'll also find twelve places to drink, fantastic children's clubs, a lavish two-deck theatre and a tranquil spa, not to mention many quieter places to simply relax.

It makes the 5 day sail across the Atlantic to the Caribbean very enjoyable, the ship was very clean and the crew was very friendly, the food was some of the best we have had on all of our cruises, cabin was very nice, a nice size, and balcony was also a good size, the cabin girl was really friendly, keeping our ice bucket filled constantly, turning down our bed every night and leaving cute towel animals on our bed, chocolates on the pillows every night, and nothing was too much for her, The shows were very good, compared to what I have seen on other ships. and the pool parties were great, was onboard over Halloween, so enjoyed the halloween pool party, drinks and cocktails were a good price, on par with what you would pay in the pubs back home, and the staff were very relaxed about taking your own drink on board, the Caribbean was lovely as always, been a few times now, particularly liked Barbados, and their lovely rum cake, I would definitely go on this ship again
