We chose this cruise to relax, have fun and make lasting memories for our family. We succeeded! It was truly an amazing, pampering experience. To not have to think about cooking, house work, food shopping was a blessing.
The embarkation and disembarkation was very well organised and smooth. Every staff member from booking the holiday to the cabin crew, waiters and cleaners were very friendly helpful and professional. Everyone smiled and acknowledged you. This created a really lovely warm atmosphere. The ship had everything you could want; bars, movies, quiet spaces, cassino, pools, games room, chapel, glass elevators, theatre, free coffee and tea stations, comfortable lounge chairs, gym, running track, and Day Spa centre .
The quality of the food and variety was exceptional. It catered for all our tastes! Our daughter has a nut allergy and I cannot believe how careful they were with her food. She had to order the night before so that they could prepare it without any contamination. Very reassuring. There was plenty to do on the ship. I
sle of Pines was our favourite Island. The sand was incredibly soft and white and the water was crystal blue. Really beautiful. When our kids went to Kids Club (Brilliant) my husband and I went to the Serenity Club which is kid free. We love this quiet, lovely space where we both lay on a hammock together and napped in the hot sun. It was great to know our kids were happy and safe. Our kids said that they want to cruise again for our next holiday. So we are saving now to do it again. Hopefully in the next 2 years. So very exciting. :)
Everyday we would get our towels shaped like an animal. They looked gorgeous. Our cabins were a good size. Plenty of place to put away luggage and clothes. They provided liquid soap and shampoo. (no conditioner, so pack some) Really nice quality and smell. Our steward was a lovely man and he was happy to fulfil any request e.g. more pillows, blanket etc. The window view was great to watch the waves.
