We booked an early savings fare for an inside cabin as we were on a budget. The cabin and shower room was small but perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean. The beds and pillows were the comfiest I have ever experienced. ALL the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was first class in the Britannia restaurant, we did not feel the need to go to any of the ones you need to pay a supplement for, the Lido self service restaurant could get a little busy at times but food there was again excellent. We did not have a drinks package, the wine was a little pricey so we kept to the cocktails which were varied and delicious, cost ranging from $8 to $12. All of the ports on this cruise were within easy walking distance from the ship so we did our own thing with tours from the local companies offered at the ports which were good value. There are one or two snobbish people on board but overall the majority of passengers were lovely. We were a little worried about the formal nights but felt at ease in a tux, dark suit and a smart dress. There is tea, coffee and cold drinks available at all times in the Lido restaurant, and breakfast, snacks and tea etc. were available through room service at no charge.
