An excellent cruise, by far one of the best holidays we have had! Travelled with kids 8 and 11 and everything was juts a awesome. We organized our own excursions at the port thru external providers at a cheaper rate which worked well for us. The food was of amazing quality and variety and can’t be faulted at all. The entertainment for both kids and adults was great and the staff in the kids club were super friendly. Our cabin 4594 had plenty of space for a family of 4. The embarkation process in the first day was really tedious and very slow so be prepared for standing in long lines and waiting! However at each and every port the embarkation and disembarkation was super easy. We had long days at port and plenty of time to organize excursions and get back before departure. The staff is super friendly in all the dining venues as well as the bars and lounges. Can’t really fault anything in this cruise other than the initial embarkation process!!!

Amazing family trip!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window
Cabin OF 4594
The bathroom has shelving to the sides and below the sink which held our toiletry bags. I bought a cheap 8 cube canvas portable shelf for the cupboard from amazon and this together with the shelves in the room, accommodated all our clothing perfectly. You can place empty suitcases under the beds so it clears out the room for movement. The walls are also magnetic so we bought a few magnetic hooks and were able to hang our hats/caps and lanyards in a handy spot every night.
