Chose because buy1 get 1 free. Ship was comfortable with nice lounges excellent crew, waiters lovely, housemaid lovely, captain joined in with everyone. But boy oh boy do not stay on deck 7. We were in cabin 7138 inside. Cruise was 16 nights and we never slept once in that time. Noise was horrendous from restaurant deck 8 above us, they worked all night dragging furniture, trolleys and Lord nos what else, complained to reception and was offered ear plugs. Ha Ha. In bad seas the ship sounded like she was going to crack up, cables inside the walls were crashing around all night, further down the deck people said it sounded like nails being hammered into the walls. We will never ever travel with this company or on this ship again. Have done many cruises and have never experienced this before. To be positive about something, shore excursions were fantastic, we saw some truly beautiful places. Dining was lovely, entertainment was good, lecturers we're informative
Have said about the horrendous noise in my review, as far as I am concerned the cruise line is well aware of the noise on this deck, I also feel it is totally wrong to take money from people and put them on this deck, it's almost fraudulent. The cost of this cruise including VIP all inclusive was approx £3000 I do not consider this cheap. I also think every person is entitled to sleep at night when the on holiday. We put up with 16 nights of noise so bad, not just us, but many other couples on this deck. I also learned from other people that the noise levels were bad all over the ship. I think it is past its sell by date. We will never travel on it again.
