The ship was beautiful, but dated. The shops on board a very good idea, but dated and very over priced, which I did not expect. The cabin was dated, had a tv, but only one English program. WFI over 12 dollars a day. The nets were creased dirty and torn, the pillow smelt of head sweat. The cost of the cruise was over £5000 for two so was not happy. Dining was very good could not fault. Was disappointed with lack the drinks package many paid a lot less and got a lot more. 65 dollars a day each so would have put another 1820 dollars on top of an already expensive holiday. Entertainment was ok attended a few shows which where good. The majority of staff where very good but some not so. I was not expecting the tours to be so expensive over 200 dollars each for v. City and I did not expect to pay for getting off the boat. I hope you are getting the jist of this more and more money on an already expensive holiday. I really looked forward to this but I have come away disappointed.

Not what I expected
