Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2016
  • Destination: Nowhere
  • Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

This cruise was a first for us. We found the embarkation to be very easy. We were greeted and dealt with by a succession of friendly and efficient staff. The scale of the ship is slightly overwhelming initially. There are plenty of great design details to help you find your way about. Interactive screens, a large guest service area and models of the ship detailing what's on each deck. We liked our stateroom and balcony. Not too far from one of the sets of lifts which is a bonus, also positioned towards the bow of the ship on deck 8 so very quiet.

We especially liked the complimentary Solarus bistro at the bow of the ship.it would be best to book but maybe you can just turn up as we did. Excellent waiter service sitting undercover in the evening sunshine. Food offered was Mediterranean, a combination of buffet and additional menu options for the main course. All the food was absolutely delicious and served by friendly helpful waiters. We had booked to see a show and were sorry to have to rush such an excellent meal.

There is of course a huge range of activities for the young and young at heart. For the 60 plus traveller, ourselves included, it was harder to find some piece and quiet in the sunshine. That said there is an extensive range of sun decks and very comfortable sun beds. Plenty going on surfing, zip line, big children's water play area which looked great fun.it would take all day to cover everything. We also looked in on the teens indoor area. Just so much on offer. Port of call was Cherbourg. Very easy getting off ship with electronic card called a Sea Pass. ( This was waiting at the door of our Stateroom for us on arrival. )Complimentary shuttle bus to town centre.

Plenty to do after dark, exploring the ship. Comedy show a bit mixed. Production of Grease excellent. All staff very keen to help with any query. Big range of snack food on offer at Sorrento and mini bites to name 2 we tried.

Just a tip it may take a while to get your suitcase delivered so bring swimsuit in your hand luggage if sun bathing is a priority that way no sunshine or time exploring wasted !

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin D2 8140

Hope this is the correct category. This may be a standard room. Stateroom spotless , very comfortable bed., great pillows, quiet air con. Bring your own toiletries. Just bars of soap and a soap dispenser in the shower. Room serviced twice daily. Large TV good selection of channels for a ship. Balcony with 2 sun loungers, footstools and a table. All brand new obviously.
