hi all my family chose this cruise for my mum and nannas joint birthday. this is my first cruise and I thought I would be bored but I was wrong. the food drinks and staff were all excellent even the entertainment was great. the housekeeper fondrila and her team were amazing think that's how you spell her name. anyway I was impressed by everything. I would go again on this ship. the only things that bugged me was that by 9am the pool deak was packed and I felt closed in with so many people it was hard to get to the pool. also it took a while to get served at any indoor bar as only one person was working at a time which on week 2 of my trip was bad as there was twice as many people on board. also all the game activities such as mini golf or shuffleboard organised by the hosts were done before 4pm and as I had booked trips I couldn't join in which would have been nice. if you do decide to go you will enjoy it a lot there is plenty of food choice in the buffet but you only get little portions in the free restaurants its ok if your not fussy but look at the menu before you decide to go in and go before 7pm as the restaurants do get very busy

Cabin Review

Cabin level 8

very big and always clean there were draws and hiding places everywhere. balcony was nice the lady and man who did my room were very friendly and kind. fondrila I think its spelt and the lad with dark hair in a small pony tail (he was in the talent show on week 1with 5 others dancing) to be promoted as they work hard and were always working with a smile on their faces

Port Reviews


when arriving there is a free bus to the ship take it as its a long hot walk to the ship. its clean but in some places a bit unsafe
