We had an excellent cabin with plenty of room and a large balcony but we did go for the upgraded superior double delux, some of the other cabins were tiny and only enough for two chairs on the small balcony. Bit surprised though that our room did not have a docking station for the ipod, and didn't include free wifi. My electric shaver wouldn't fit the socket in the bathroom so run out of charge. The pool area was crammed with sunbeds and hardly room to move. This area was know by guests as "Benidorm". The first week we had 3 formal nights which was a bit too much then we only had one on the second week. We had a number of days at sea, not going anywhere just sailing round when we could have been ashore visiting an island, all to keep us onboard spending money. The food in the restaurant on a night was ok but small portions but you had to like green beans as they were served with everything. There was no wow factor with the ship like others we have been on the atrim was very poor normally the hub on the ship and meeting area. The ship is meant to be like a 5 star hotel but did lack a little. I would not expect several toilets in the public area to be constantly blocked or out of order. During the day at the aft of the ship there was a wiff of effluent waffing about when we were sat in the bar. One tip do not book the trip to Cockleshell beach St Kitts this is an absolute dump not what is in the pictures, no white sand or blue sea and full of rotting seaweed, many people on the trip refused to stay.
