Our first ever cruise! We joined friends at a weaker moment, worried we would be too young, wouldn't like the experience, sea sick and bored!! Well we could not be father from the truth. It was amazing. Loved the ship, so big there was loads to do, the cleanliness and quality of the ship was fabulous. The staff are all very friendly and the food was magnificent. Loved every single aspect of this trip,we had a balcony room on the 11 deck, fantastic. The entertainment on board was beyond amazing but the star of the show was the food, my lord I could have left the ship three stone heavier! Loved the fact you could awake to the fabulous spectacle of watching this huge beat dock with pin point accuracy. We are so smitten with this company and the fact they made every aspect effortless we are already searching to book another. The only slight and I mean slight things we didn't like was the smell of cigarettes on the upper deck and the speed of the bar service, but these are very small points and no way could I mark down the experience for this. Added to all of the above the most amazing value for money, the ease of getting on and off the ship and a magical time will be had by all. We are Looking forward to my next trip.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B1

Compact but with an amazingly great sized bed, 31 M sq and very well set out, perfect sized bathroom and as much hot water as you could ever wish for.

Port Reviews

Taormina (Messina)

Got off the ship to enjoy the city, fantastic but a little unfriendly

Malta (Valletta)

Best place we have ever visited,all ready booked for a return here. You must wake to enjoy the docking. The city is amazing and loved every minute. The only small issue was that our time was limited

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Oh lord, get off that ship and head to the old town - amazing food and entertainment all very reasonable.
