Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2015
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom

Was our first cruise. So can only talk absolute, not relative!

Was a good ship with neat well planned cabins. Efficient housekeeping would keep them clean. TV channels extremely limited and could have more on offer.bathrooms in cabin are small but one can adjust easily in them.

Port visits were refreshing. We took the ship offerred excursions for 3 ports while balance we went out our own.

Food choices were many. Dinner was served with option menu cards and like a 4-5 star restaurant. Internet remained a challenge as priced high. Thus we grabbed free internet options as and when on port , typically by cafes

Small heated pool was good to laze in . While tea coffee was available 24x7 almost, coke wasnt free flowing. Entertainment was really good - evening shows in a large auditorium were great. Saw "Beatles" in action , with their typ dress et al. Played TT and surprisingly table was as smooth as one gets on stable land! Interestingly I could win a global champion medal in a Ship organised contest.

Boarding process went smooth and our advise to all reach early :6-9 hours ahead is fine.

A live casino with slot machines was a hot favorite with many. Tried, lost and thus retreated back in our shells.

Evenings we could pursue our walks on the long walking track on top deck. A mini golf practise area helped us to swing our arms when we felt like it.

In short , the Cruise is worth a repeat!!
