Zenith is an old boat, built in 1992 so with that in mind it was never going to be one of the newer luxury liners. The accommodation was adequate without being luxurious. With an older boat such as Zenith there are always creeks and noises as the boat moves which can be disturbing for sleep if you are a light sleeper. On the question of the movement of the boat we both find that there was quite a lot of “swell” movement which would say to us as laypeople the stabilisers were broken or were not up to scratch.

Secondly, the cruise line Pullmantur is mostly catering for a Spanish clientele and again with that in mind be careful about booking with them as of course most of the programs on board such as shows and all communications are mainly in Spanish.

We had taken out a “Black Waves“ package which is the top package on board which gives you various advantages such as free Wi-Fi in a special part of the boat!, private sun deck, waiter service at own assigned restaurant table and free drinks from a drinks list throughout the cruise. No personnel could explain to me why the free Wi-Fi was not available in our cabin and throughout the boat which would be normal for that type of service on other ships. So when you want to use the Wi-Fi you had to visit an assigned bar!

Cabin Review

Cabin Penthouse

Good size penthouse suite with small balcony. Not able to be changed into a twin configuration as beds are smaller singles
