Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Family Balcony
Traveled with children

Restaurants well kept, some more luxurious than others. The French and Italian especially nice. The taste restaurant for evening meal and breakfast had good selection of food and service was very good.

This year we noted that the ultimate beverage package had changed from last year. Champagne and speciality whiskies were no longer included neither was Cava. This was disappointing, also I drink prossecco and although a large glass was still under $15 I was only entitled to a small one which didn't make sense. I have to say that generally a lot of the bar staff appeared tired and fed up, often being on the verge of rudeness when serving you, I did not find this on Jade ship last year.

The ice bar was a big disappointment, if you like going into a large freezer with a few ice blocks and a choice of 4 ready made cocktails with a t.v on for a cost of $26 dollars then this is for you. It was poor in every way and definitely not worth the money.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony

good size balcony and bigger than a lot of others, excellent views. Room good size obviously not massive when you have children but this is to be expected.
