Seeing some of the negative reviews on this site I was a tad apprehensive. I should not have worried, my first cruise and it was amazing. Yes the ship is a bit old but I felt it added to the character. The ship is very clean, cabin staff amazing and JoJo and Teng in the Compass Rose Restaurant made our holiday. For the whole trip they were our waiters, very funny and great hard working guys :-). My single cabin was a bit small, very clean and ideal for one person. Favourite port was definately Portamao in Portugal, great little beach resort. We had the drinks package and I thought it was worth the money. Yes some drinks cost extra, you had at least one brand choice of all the main spirits. I like San Miguel so was very fortunate that this was the lager included in the all inclusive. Loved having a little flutter in the Casino after dinner, the staff were so friendly. :-) Come home very relaxed and I cannot wait to book another cruise with TUI next year.

Cabin although small was fine for one person. Kept very clean.
