We chose this cruise as friends had booked and we wanted to join them. We had only done 1 cruise before, and it was 5 star, with 210 passengers. People told us not expect the same but we were pleasantly surprised, we loved it! From the time we checked in to embark it was efficiency plus.This is a well oiled machine. We were not cruising to sit on the deck on a lounger in the hot sun and didn't get into our swimsuits even once. We were there for the offshore visits and to return to a lovely cool air-conditioned ship. We were wined, dined, entertained, and in bed about 11pm! The dining was exceptionally good which again was unexpected. the cleanliness of the boat, the service, the staff, 99 percent were fantastic. The shows reminded us of trips to Las Vegas. We had organised and pre paid all our offshore excursions from home, which took several hours and isn't something you want to do on the boat when you would missing out on valuable entertainment time. Also some tours booked out. The tours were very efficiently run, the organisation on this boat was impressive and the room mail deliveries critical for communication of all activities and other ship notices. There might have been 3000 guests on this boat but we didn't ever see most of them! A lot are by the pool.....

Surprisingly good, I'm coming back for more!

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony
Cabin B4 B752
Our room was "aft" and we had a balcony at the back which gave a fantastic view when sailing away. the room itself was fine. The bed was to die for comfortable as were the pillows. the wardrobe had a generous number of coathangers, and storage was ample. we kept the area between bed and deck, which was our largest space, clear of clothes etc and never felt cramped or crowded. the bathroom had generous storage for a small room and the shower was really nice to be under.
