Traveled with children

I must admit that we were very anxious boarding after reading the previous negative reviews regarding overcrowding. It was our first time cruising so bear in mind, we had nothing to compare it with.

We arrived at Southampton port and as soon as we parked up, staff were there at hand to take our luggage. The check in process was so organised and easy. There were plenty staff around and it all went very smooth. Before we knew it, we were on board and headed straight to Windjammer for a much needed lunch. What struck us immediately was the warmth and friendliness of all the crew.

We then headed to our rooms. My husband and the boys had a balcony room on the 8th deck which was clean and very spacious. I shared a deluxe ocean view on the 9th deck with my daughter. Again the room was very clean, spacious and plenty of room for storage. The beds and pillows were very comfortable.
