I love this ship, the staff are lovely, the ship is beautiful. there's lots of choice food and drinks. the only things i didn't like is the 2 jacuzzi's in the indoor pool, they never worked av been on 2 cruises with discovery, and each cruise i've not seen them work yet. and i just wish when you travel to a colder place like Norway or Russia the pools were heated, you pay all that money and can't go in a warm or hot pool. which would be lovely. and the other thing is the wifi its so expensive 1.2gb is £50, they said it will last a week. but a lot had used it in 48 hrs. you think you have a week of wifi but it only lasts you till you have used your 1.2gb. the tv had about 25 to 30 channels but maybe 18 of them just have tui page or tui cruise on, that would be nice to have some proper channels on, instead of news, news,news and a game channel that repeats all day everyday. the 2 film channels is not to bad but sometimes you can wait a longtime before a film comes on. free bottles of water would have been nice to but you have to pay for thous. the staff work really hard most of the beds on board are new and very comfy, i booked the same room and went back because the bed was so comfy as i can suffer with back pains, but the bed had been changed, my porter did his best to try make us comfy, but explained the bed must have been change for some reason, as when i went last year they were all brand new hipnos beds. but the things i mentioned can be improved hopefully, but i still love this beautiful ship. and will be back and hope i can find the jacuzzis indoor working, the outside ones do work, and there nice and hot, be nice if pool was warmer. lol. in colder countrys.

Cabin Review

Cabin junior suite

cabin his lovely, but the bed had been change so it wasn't as comfy as the first time i had that room last year. all rooms had ad new hipno's beds but for some reason this bed or mattress had got swapped. but everything else was lovely with the room and staff couldn't do enough looking after you, our steward was willy lovely young man couldn't do enough 4 you. and the young lady helping him i think her name was Melinda. they both worked very hard keeping our room clean and they tried very hard to make our bed more comfy for us.
