Sail Date: Jun 2016
Cabin: Standard Inside

The service and food were amongst the best out of the 30 or so cruises we have been on with various cruise lines from the Med to the Far East. The ship is spotless BUT we are keen ballroom dancers and overall the dance experience was very disappointing for the following reasons:-

- for 12 of the 14 nights we suffered a Frank Sinatra impersonator 3 times each night. Even if you like Sinatra I believe the boredome factor would soon creep in.

-the orchestra also played strict tempo jazz orientated music. The music was usually too slow and lacking in both oomph and modernity.
