Our first cruise out of Southampton , no flights Great port facilities, car parks next to ship. Boarding was quick. We picked this cruise because of itenary and was not disappointed Only Vigo was a bit disappointing being Sunday and nothing open. Highlights being azores and maderia. We did, nt do excursions at every port but the ones we did were excellent Our cabin was OK and alway kept, clean, attendants work so hard. I have seen people moan about the food but I don't, t know why we did,nt have one bad meal plenty of choices and food always hot. Tried 2 specialist restaurants chops and sabor both excellent. To my surprise the windjammer was OK too, had some bad experiences on previous ships. Entertainment was good as usual and cruise director chubby was very entertaining, liked his meditation classes. All the facilties were great, we like the gym especially, like the fact you can have sauna or sit in jacuzzi after. Bars were all good, service was excellent and friendly but why so many brits(I, m British) what to sit in a pub astounds me! The only thing that I found out on this trip was that when weathers bad on cruise days there did, nt seem to be enough seating. We were a bit unlucky with weather on sea days but that's just something you can, t control. Royal carribean need to sort out the sun beds we did, nt get chance to use one in solarium at all, one afternoon there were 6*people and the rest covered in towels, bit of a joke. All together though great trip Leaving ship was very good sad to go home
