If you want to go away and lose weight then this is the cruise for you. The food is literally no better than 1 star. Staff service is ok but ignore the staff to customer ratio half of them obviously missed the ship, takes ages to get served, a lot quicker getting yourself. We've both had upset stomachs . Ok the cabin not bad, ship tidy, what they don't tell you in the luxury cruise brochure is they let 3rd class citizens on at various ports for a stay at next to nothing to make up the numbers. When you work hard all year and book a luxury cruise one expects to eat well, get top service and relax with like minded people. That not going to happen with this cruise liner company. The worst part is constantly being sniped at with hidden charges, maybe we should have read the small print but when you pay for all inclusive including food and drinks package one doesn't expect to pay for bottled water, orange juice and the like. They also force a daily service charge per person on you. VERY VERY dissapointed. 1 star rating I'm afraid.

Total disappointment

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom – Fantastica
Cabin B2 11007
The first time We have ever been away and lost weight. Don't expect anything less than 1star food and constant ways of charging for what one would expect to be included in an all exclusive food and drink package. We feel totally cheated. Since when is a bottle of water charged on an all inclusive. Totally and utterly ripped of, worst 2 week holiday of our lives.
