I had read a number of reviews prior to this cruise and was a bit anxious about some of the bad ones! However I have to say that I really thought that such negativity was in my opinion unfounded! Yes, it's a big ship, we knew that when we booked it. The midship lifts have no public stairs, so you have to wait a few minutes. (You are on holiday). Some said ,you can't swing a cat in the cabin, I found it perfectly adequate.
The balcony, too small, yes I have had bigger in past cruises, but was fine, two chairs and a table! The food was lovely, Horizon was busy but nice variety. The glass house for a small cost was really good , as was Sinduh. The shows all but the last night were excellent!
Sun beds were close together and you had to get up early to sit where you wanted to. I managed to have a good swim every day, was cold but I like that when its hot weather! The staff were friendly we had a laugh with some. Our cabin steward was very good, whatever you needed he would sort it. We met some lovely people, you know who you are , ( love story met in the lift) I would like to say that I always look at reviews before a holiday and some I had read were off putting, but go with an open mind, the moaners ,I ask that you go back on the ships you liked best and let others enjoy this modern boutique type ship.
