Lovely cruise from Tenerife to the Caribbean, everything excellent apart from:-

The engines on the boat are extremely smokey, particularly noticeable at night, also leaving a layer of soot on the pool deck at one point one of the pools was closed for a day as it had soot on the bottom. As an asthma sufferer I am pretty aware of this health hazard and I think this needs immediate attention.

Also whoever was at the helm when we docked in Bridgetown, very scary, we were coming in quite fast and the bow just missed the two dock cranes. I watched the safety officer shout at the people standing on the deck at the bow to get back, he thought we were going to hit the cranes I watched him brace for the impact.
