Boarded the ship in Palma on the 13th October, for what was its penultimate cruise. The ship left port at 23.00 and it was apparent it was a bit rough, leading to the first day at sea, being a nightmare, Both myself and partner had to get seasick pills, for the first time I have to say, normally ok in rough weather. After our first stop the weather calmed and the rest of the cruise was just as good as the first one. All the crew were fantastic and very helpful, from the top to the bottom. Cabins was perfect for our needs, and kept nice and clean thanks to Desmond our cabin cleaner. The food was brilliant, in all the resturants, and the staff were fantastic, very attentive and kept our tables clean and tidy, and replenished our drinks whenever necessary. On the ship were plenty of bars and room to move around freely, loads of seats and sunloungers and on decks that were kept clean and tidy always. On leaving the ship at the end of the cruise it was tinged with dismay to think that in a weeks time it will be moving to pastures new, to be decommissioned as a cruise liner, which is a pity as we had a wonderful two cruises aboard her.
