I originally booked the maiden cruise from Southampton to Barcelona long before they added the two 3 and 4 night preview cruises which I will review separately.
The contrast to the 3 and 4nt cruises was amazing, with most of the contractors disembarked and 99% of things operational those just joining were all asking the same question, what could have been wrong?
Ironically of the two weeks it started with our first code Bravo onboard whilst in Southampton due to incinerator smoke drifting into areas it shouldn't have. With that done and dusted we set sail, albeit to Capt. Gus' slightly depressing classical music choice!
