Positives:inside cabin on navigation deck was spacious and a comfortable bed,with excellent cabin stewards.(wawan & wayan) pleasant bar staff ( Louis & Freddie)in the lido bar was excellent.waiteresses was pleasant.food was very good most days,excellent selection of premium alcoholic drinks. Negatives:the ocean bar lacked atmosphere in the early evening,perhaps some sought of entertainment would not go a miss! My wife is a big lover for ‘shrimps’on some occasions there where ‘shrimps’on the menu in the lido restaurant when it first opened in the evening but by 7.00pm when we ready to eat there was none to be had!was told by the servers you would have to wait 15 minutes,but this turned out to be not true on several occasions!what a con. We visited a beautiful island called ‘half moon cay’which they provided a bbq,you only had water,but we bought a drinks package which if you wanted a beer you had to pay for it!. However had a enjoyable cruise.

Good & average
