We chose this particular cruise because of the itinerary plus the time of year we could go. Having whittled it down to two possible cruises we went for the cheaper option. It turned out it was probably NOT cheaper at all because we hadn't factored in the 'add-ons', as this was our first cruise and the excitement overcame the research. However it was a good choice because it's a lovely ship and the service is amazing!

Finding the dock was the difficult bit but mainly because of our sat-nav abandoning us as 'within the area of your destination' about a mile and a half before we reached it.

Embarkation was amazingly fast and easy - for those of us who have only ever experienced the nightmare of airports before, it was wonderful and over in minutes!

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BE

A lovely cabin. A little bigger than a hotel room. We opted for a king sized bed. We heard the air conditioning but little else in the night. The cabin is above the galley and we did hear some kitchen noise but it was not obtrusive, it was intermittent, over by 10.00 p.m. and only made us comment on it once. (There was a big metallic sounding crash - as though someone had dropped a large meat tray followed by the sound which lead us to wonder if he had then kicked it across the other side of the room?) It was just this once.

The light from the corridor shines in around the door a bit, not badly but if you need pitch darkness to sleep it might bother you. There was no corridor noise. The lifts are a few doors down, we didn't hear anything from there either. If you are fortunate enough to have the same room steward - Wilson, he is an absolute star.
