this ship is the best. the ship size was a bit to big for my opinion, well i like a bit big ,but not to much. we ordered to be in the haven. lovely. it was a king size bed there was 3 balconies one with a sun roof. the room was spacious. the entertainment was excellent. there was 5 shows in the morning and 8 shows in the evening. this ship had nickelodeon on board. so when you watch it on the telly it is on a cruise ship. the dining was okay. the menu in cagney's steakhouse was amazing.. we participated in the conger dance on deck when we left new York we loved the dance routine.

the buffet was lovely it was just it is always packed. we weren't allowed coffee in the day the same with milk. the staff are very friendly patting your heads giving you hugs and stroking your head there like your mom ore dad. i probably enjoyed the view the most. when we went to Barcelona the first couple day at sea was good and the last couple was really boring. it felt like you were trapped. the service was amazing they let us book an excursion in new York. this ship is more for children then adults because its more screens and slides everywhere.we have had a voyage on the opera and that is better. oh well! this was still amazing. there was the le bistro that we had snails and pigeon. mom was shocked by millionaire dollar. while we was on this cruise we saw msc aromia, qm2, azura and carnival triumph. the aromia was a mid sized ship the right size for me. the triumph has suffers lots of damages and engine fire. this ship is big and not my type of ship.the queen Mary 2 is very old fashion. the boarding scheduled were to small for every body to get of that 3,467 passenger liner.the azura was massive I've heard it is one of the biggest ships in the world it is by p&o a British line.oh and we saw anthem of the seas .our ship was 5 cm bigger . so i said"we're bigger than you.

the children club on the escape was anightmare. it was to good there was a children aqua park with fast slides.the embarkation in hamburg was ridiculous. we waited 6 hrs and then we didn't bother. we got a cocktail and had a bit of a swim. in Bruges we saw the opera. I've been on her the escape was much different to the msc opera . the ports were lovely, apart from new york. new york was a bit packed. back to Madeira my home port. then i flied to the uk. and told my family how much i loved it. finnaly i found this usefull website to help people not to waste thier money if they dont like a ship!
