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. The meeting of 200 passengers actually took place impromptuly, at the instigation of a small number of passengers, at the end of a lecture, therefore the majority of people attended by default. The food was excellent with both executive chefs.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Very spacious cabin on deck 5. Excellent storage facilities, kept spotlessly clean by the cabin steward
Bathroom was a good size
