Embarkation was really lengthy as customs was offline on the day. If you pay a little extra it would be better to go with the easy onboard option. The ship is lovely and clean. Unfortunately i feel that they over crowd the ship with too many people... 95% of the time we had no where to sit. This was on the ship and on the islands you disembark on, we ended up getting severely burned as we had to stand in the sun all day.The buffet was a nightmare. We hardly had anything to eat there as the food was either finished or you had to queue for a REALLY long time to get anything. And by "queue" i mean free for all every one barges in from all sides. They should really implement PORTION CONTROL and a proper queuing system for the buffet. Also had to wait most mornings outside the cafeteria to try even get a table to be able to eat a breakfast. Then when you get inside you queue again to try get food. Rather use the restaurants as at least you know you wont go to bed hungry at night. The staff are always friendly and ready to assist which was lovely, but unfortunately the overall experience was not what i had dreamt it would be.

Didn't feel like a holiday
