Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin:
first port of call. Antigua.
five ships in port.
Grand Turk.
Along the rail on the (small) promenade deck.
Bridgeton beach, Harbour Lights.
the busy pool/daytime entertainment area.
Beautiful beaches abound.

We brought the cruise forward, for family reasons, as it was planned for my retirement (end March) wife's 60th (early May) to be taken around end April. Very apprehensive, having read many reviews. Firstly the ship was beautiful, big and well finished throughout all decks and bars/restaurants etc.Service was very good, never once did we experience any delays to attentiveness. Many aspects truly wonderful, Food, Entertainment facilities, its sheer size . Our inside cabin adequate, all the staff were helpful, you could talk with them share their lifestyle from home to here. We spent every port day out and about seeing what we could in the time we had.

So many mentioned the stairs in mid ships, yes bad mistake for those who need midships stairs. Atrium, well more like a shopping centre, no central sparkle, except for the Chandelier!. Needs to have more of a focal point to entertain people, rather that it being a sit off area.

Slightly holiday campish theme, sing alongs etc not our taste, towels/deck chairs, same old same old. We enjoyed eating well, Sindhu, superb. Nice wines, a good local beer, with real ale options in Brodies. Meridian suited us fine, food was excellent.

Cabin Review

Cabin inside

Adequate, comfortable. Sachin was excellent. Some issues with creaking walls/fittings/pipes, a few had this on this corridor. Some didn't.
