Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin:

Probably the biggest disappointment was the food. The buffet restaurant seems to have no dress code and the food was absolutely appalling. Cheap, mass produced rubbish.

The a la carte restaurants (47° and gallery 47) were slightly better but the food was all bought in and heated up, menus lacked imagination and the quality was average at best.

We did have one good meal by paying £46 to upgrade to the Kora La Asian restaurant. This was almost 5 star but not quite.

Cabin Review

Cabin Grand Suite

Cabin was spacious and comfortable with a large balcony, due to the ships age the furnishings are a bit dated and tired.

The main problem was the noise from the restaurant area above where work starts at 3am with banging, crashing and scraping. Immediately outside there is a crew access door to the cabin corridor which was constantly being slammed shut by the crew. This resulted in very little sleep, we left the ship feeling more tired than when we embarked.
