6 islands cruise.

We chose this cruise as initially all 6 islands were ones we hadn't visited. Unfortunately,3 had to be changed prior to departure but at least we didn't end up with our dreaded "days at sea"

Overall an excellent week. Overwhelmingly, staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Typically- our cabin stewardess Serina was superb.

Cabin Review

Cabin Junior suite

As mentioned in a previous review, Cabin 8022’s balcony does indeed have an overhang of deck 9 above (an open deck which is wider than 8) and obviously it can reduce the amount of sun you get. You may get noise from people walking or sunbeds etc being moved early morning. It is though an excellent size suite with plenty of storage and a good fridge. We had some slightly turbulent nights when we got a lot of creaks from the balcony door (couldn’t fix it).

We did have an issue the shower - at times it was very hot and on one occasion the cold water went off completely whilst I was showering. They did change the shower head but this did not alleviate the problem. It did eventually get sorted.
