Sail Date: Jan 2017

We have cruised on P+O, Celebrity,Royal Caribbean, and Viking, and this cruise was by far the best value for money.

The food was consistently excellent, the staff ( apart from a small number of Eastern Europeans, who needed some customer service training) were wonderful, the entertainment team (with the exception of the comedians who were generally poor) worked really hard and delivered some excellent productions, and the ship although a mature lady, was spotlessly clean and cared for. There were some issues with leaking AC pipes, but in external temperatures of mid to high 30s not totally unexpected.

There were some passengers who unfortunately suffered from "delusions of grandeur" they expected 5 star cruising despite paying very competitive prices, their moaning and rudeness was legendary,and if it hadn't been so annoying,would have been a source of entertainment.

Cabin Review

Very spacious cabin on deck 5. Excellent storage facilities, kept spotlessly clean by the cabin steward

Bathroom was a good size
