Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Mini Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Love this ship, itinerary took us to a couple of new places. The ship was full but never felt crowded. Food was lovely... I put on 4lbs. I had to make a choice every night...and the strawberry sundae was delicious!

We had the best cabin steward ever, Shiva, he was so efficient and helpful.

Mum uses a wheelchair and all the staff went out of their way to help her. The doors to the Prom deck were not electric so quite a challenge to get her out there, although there always seemed to be a helpful person to hold doors open. Leaving the Belvedere and going out onto deck 9 by the Aquarius pool there were 2 sets of doors to go through, one set automatic and the other not... I came home with a few bruises as I struggled to hold a door open and push mum through at the same time.

Cabin BD

Lovely big room. Great big balcony with 2 recliners and 2 chairs, a big table, small table and 2 footrests. Bathroom had 2 sinks, shower, Jacuzzi bath with shower. Daily canapes and a never empty fruit bowl. Chocolates and champagne on arrival.

We used room service every day for breakfast, it was lovely.

It was possible to get an accessible shuttle here and then walk round the town. It was s bit uneven for the wheelchair but we managed.
