Very enjoyable first cruise, having read some poor reviews we were pleasantly surprised. The whole experience was well organised and painless with all the ships staff keen to offer help if needed. Only one or two children on board so the ship was quiet and no annoyed parents. Some reviewers have complained about ill dressed people drinking beer at all hours, yes people did drink(what a surprise on all inclusive) I saw no bad behaviour at all.

Yes there are people wearing casual gear or very little around the pool but in the evening most people made an effort.The formal evening was called dress to impress and certainly in the 47 restaurant everybody did.

I cannot compare the entertainment with other ships but we saw a show on the first evening, loved it and went back most other nights. All the entertainment staff mixed with guests and helped to create a friendly atmosphere on board. We reserve special praise for the serving staff who worked hard but always had time for a chat, look out for Mary in the atrium area.

Cabin inside

Very quiet part of the ship, reasonable amount of room, good wardrobe space.
