Sail Date: Aug 2017

We chose this cruise as it was the newest of the TUI Ships. We are elderly aged 68 and 78 and slightly disabled. We had assistance at the airport, but struggled to get to the coach going to the port. The ship was medium-sized not quite up to P & O standard.We chose a de-luxe balcony cabin on deck 7. Everything was spotless. Bathroom was new-looking but the step up into it was a bit difficult. All the linen and towels were changed regularly, no complaints here. We found the "hidden charges" a bit disappointing. £2 for a bottle of water.

Also money for charities added which you can have removed if you can be brave enough to do, without having a guilt trip. You expect to have to pay for the mini bar, but water etc left on your table, we found a bit mean. We needed water to make tea and coffee. We only left the ship at one port as it was too far to walk off the ship to get on the buses. I made the mistake of booking this in school holidays and never used the pool as it was full of children (to be expected). Also children running up and down corridors after midnight. We enjoyed the cruise on the whole but a little more forthought on my part would have made it better. Probably wouldn't go again.
