Sail Date: Jul 2019
Cabin: Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower
Traveled with children

What an amazing experience overall with very little to fault!

Embarkation was swift, we used CP Parking and had priority boarding through our suite booking. It took us less than 20 minutes from arrival at the dock in our car to stepping on board the ship - couldn't have been any easier!

Once on board we did find that there was no assistance/help for those new to cruising to know where we should go or what to do! I felt this was the one element of the cruise that was a little bit of a let down. Safe to say we walked aimlessly around for a while before working out where to go.

Cabin Review

Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Cabin AB

Lovely suite with plenty of room for a family of four. Our cabin steward Rajesh was exceptional. Ample wardrobe space and lovely balcony at the rear of the ship not overlooked by anyone! Shower needs a slight repair as water leaked out of the cubicle onto the floor and needed mopping up after each shower. Whirlpool bath a lovely additional extra.

Very quiet with no noise from any other cabin or the floors above and below. End of corridor position meant a nice quiet week! Only slight downside is the vibration from the engines when docking in port each morning - but when there was so much to see and do, who would want to lie in anyway!!
