Wow what a fantastic start to our cruise, luggage dealt with very easily and was - onboard in no time at all. Got to our stateroom and was disappointed that room was not as described (two queensize beds) but one queensize and a pull out sofa but was comfortable enough.

The children were thoroughly entertained on the ship and the activities are fantastic. We have a child who is autistic and we had no worries at all because he was in very good hands in the children's club - big thanks to Trevor!

The only thing felt was wrong is that there was not a toiletry pack in the bathroom. There was handsoap and shampoo in a dispenser but had to ask for shower cap which attendant was happy to get. However on a ship of this rating really expected these extras to be in the room.

The only other small niggle we had was with the photographer who lost some of our photos - they weren't too good at helping us but I suppose it saved us some money!

Apart from that everything was really good - would definitely go again and would recommend it to anyone of any age because it seemed there was something for everyone.

Happy cruising

Great Cruise but what about the toiletries!

Fantastic cabin - we could see the Captain and First Mate sail the ship from the balcony and could wave to them.
