I have not been with this cruise line, normally P&O, Royal Carrabian, or Princess cruises. Liverpool cruie clube (now cruise club UK) did FANTASTIC deals including full drinks package for really low price. The buffet is smaller than other ships and becomes over crowded especially at breakfast, not sure why they do not keep seated breakfast going on until 10am to eleveate this state. Food in buffet a tad limited again when compared to other cruise lines, however seated dinning was exceptional, and the Blue Lagoon was excellent service and food. The venues were a first for me after searching for this combination of Venice and Malta for years, really good venues and quiet close to the town (walking distance) in most cases unlike the med cruises with bigger ships. Cabi was small (inner to save expenses) and didnt have coffee facilities, which meant the wife had to pop and get coffee before I stirred !!! (yes OK but I am a tad disabled) Not sure the cabin lady we had was changing sheets but bed always made and cabin acceptable clean standard. Overall really good value for money, excellent attitude by staff, and a great holiday.

Most enjoyable experience

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin IF 4487
Tad small, a mirror above bed would give impression of more spacein stead of some random painting, bunk bed a nuisance as restriced movement, bed lights hidden by pillows and useless, very limited space either side, could not get to shelves on bedside cabinet.
Shower outstanding, best I have experienced cruising.
No coffee facilities a BIG disappiontment.
Adaquate hanging space and drawers.
Deck 6 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins
