we went as part of a wedding group, we were invited to attend a wedding on the cruise. wonderful time was had. Food was often cold, and bland. The fish at the Pantry is disgusting (can think of no other word for it) need to use a different type of fish. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The staff were wonderful and so helpful. Bingo was great and entertaining but quite expensive for the few games you play. Bit disappointed with the confidentiality of some of the staff. Our daughter-in-law was only 8 weeks pregnant at the time of the cruise and it is a requirement to let the cruise know if you are. Seeing as they had paid travel insurance, and she had found out a few weeks before the cruise she thought she had best let them know. But they had not told anyone else!! Found out after the cruise that the cruise co-ordinator had told all the wedding group that she was pregnant as one of the other girls in the wedding group was pregnant also . Needless to say they were very disappointed as they hadn't even told family members, and did not want to take any of the glory from the couple who were getting married.

Awesome time, staff lovely, food not so good

Cabin Review

Cabin
Our room was clean and plenty of room. Plenty of storage. Our staff were AMAZING.
Nothing wrong with being on the bottom deck. Our son and daughter-in-law were on deck 5 and had to pay extra $$, but their room and service was no different to ours. Would recommend the Oceanview room though as i get a bit claustrophobic, but no problems at all
