we chose the cruise on price so i cant really moan,but the ship needs scutteling its very old.its very 80s.the cabins were ok and kept very clean.the entertainment in the theater was brilliant (every night a differnt show) the deck entertainment was rubbish ive been on ships where they had back ground music on when your just lounging around,but not here, they did have a organ player/singer but he needs drowning,they do have a pool and spa lol,lol.lol only room for nine people on a ship holding 1200 people so that was a no go (they were only working for two days as the novo virus took hold then they shut shut them down (must say no matter where you went the staff had sanitizers every where and made you use them.another pain was if you just wanted a drink of water and you were on top deck you had to go to deck 4 to the machine in the lido (there was only one).they do try and sell you drinks packages on your first couple of days which gets on your nerves.even if you have the package your still have to pay a suppliment so we swerved that one.there isnt much to do on the ship nothing is open until the evening.the compass dining is where you should eat as they are very attentive and the waiters are brilliant. but im glad the week finished when it did as the novo virus was taking its toll as more and more were getting it,every body was affraid to touch anything on board but appart from that it was ok so ill give it 5 out of 10.

Cabin Review

Cabin deck 1

small but do-able,after one blocked toilet and one strip light broken we were good to go.the tv was sporadic sometimes worked then didnt when it did you had one channel.only one plug point,the ship viberates none stop (you get used to it)
