First time cruisers on recommendation from friends. Airport to embarkation port was easy and welcome on board was friendly. Luggage taken off our hands and delivered to cabin. Time to discover ship and eat before settling into life at sea. Cabin was spotless and well put together with sea balcony. Toilet and shower with opaque doors and privacy curtain,huge bed, sofa, vanity unit and plenty of storage space. During the week,we made full use of dining,drinking and entertainment facilities. Some at extra cost for big show or special meal but everything was quality. We were on an all inclusive package which included drinks and gratuities(if not on this type of package drinks are very expensive and gratuities can be booked separately ay about $15 per person/day) Only downside was that shore excursions were very expensive. If we had taken a trip at each port it could have cost around another $1500 in total !!! Ideally some form of cheaper shuttle type transport to the major excursion sites would benefit a lot of people. We were however happy to relax on board and use the superb facilities. As a tester cruise this was a fantastic experience. Still haven't got over the size of the vessel and the comfort of the sailing,even when the wind got up.I suppose it is quite difficult to shift 160,000 tonnes of tour liner !!!!
