Embarkation at Tilbury was efficient and well organised.
We had ocean view room on deck 5. Spacious and clean. Plenty of hanging space and hangers. Shower room was a good size with powerful shower. Our cabin guy, Constancio, was excellent. Very thorough and professional, polite and spoke good English.
The understanding of English from some of the front-line staff was poor. Also some basic information on arrival could have been better ie: food was being served on arrival, lifeboat number was on life-jacket as well as on cruise card. This would have saved us from being in the wrong area, but also because staff didn't understand our question, in English! Also staff just stood waving paddles with numbers on instead of explaining they were to indicate which lifeboat group you were in.
