Embarkation was fairly smooth, although we were supposed to get priority (Platinum) - it didn't happen. (If you don't like being herded like sheep, then don't cruise!) Cabins were ready, which seldom happens on other lines. Great mix of passengers. (The best part of cruising is the people you meet. The worst part of cruising is the people you meet.) The old girl is starting to show her age, with many breakdowns of Lifts, Laundry, Guests Laundry. Plastic buckets catching water from above near theatre for more than a week. Dining was excellent, possibly the best of any ship in the last 15 years, Food fantastic, with reasonable portions of most dishes. Waiters excellent,worked as team - well done Rudolph and Josef. Tender service very smooth As "Winston" was right behind us we missed one port, but diverted to another with minimum of fuss. Quality of entertainment was excellent.

Chased by Winston

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BD C626
Cabin was comfortable, if somewhat small, balcony was quite small. Cabin steward was excellent. Bathroom while functional, was very small.
