I chose this ship as I wanted to be away on these dates and this cruise came up at a very reasonable rate for a solo traveller. I had also heard very good reports is Azamara cruises. The transfer from the airport was not easy. We had to claim our luggage twice and then had a long walk to the transfer bus in high temperatures. On arrival at the ship we had to claim our luggage again and another walk before a check in. Recommend asking for assistance if walking is not too easy. I was worn out by the time I actually got on Board. My cabin was on deck 4, outside. Very convenient. Excellent large bed. Smaller than some other cabins but ok for me on my own. Bathroom very small with small shower cubicle and shower curtain. Could not be easy for a large person. The main dining room I used every evening. Very good menu with a good choice. Food very well presented and good. Soups excellent. I normally joined the solo group but it worked just as well if you just turned up on your own. Breakfast every day was in the self service restaurant. Would not recommend the fried eggs, rubbery, scrambled eggs the same or the bacon but the other choices were very good. Lunch most days in same restaurant. Good choice of salads every day and same with desserts. Some hot dishes good but not all. Not a lot of room for a large choice. Freshly cooked burghers on pool deck excellent. The service in all was first class and could not be faulted. It seems a happy ship. The amazing evening was superb, visit to a theatre in Monte Carlo with a very good unusual trapeze show. Organisation very good and straightforward. One entertainer comedienne and magician was well worth watching but the rest was mediocre. Not a good choice if you want evening entertainment. Good choice of ports. Excursions expensive. Internet access very expensive. Loved the size of the ship and the friendliness of the staff. Would I go again. Yes if the price was right. It did not live up to my expectations but maybe they were too high.
