Sail Date: Dec 2019

This was a Christmas present to us both, with the interesting places being visited. We'd never been away for Christmas before. Tui Dreamliner flights are excellent and we treated ourselves to Premier class - very good. For us embarkation was smooth, but Montego Bay airport was disorganised (not in Tui's control). Also embarkation/disembarkation at the Port was disorganised - again poor coordination by the Jamaican authorities .

Flew to Jamaica and did two 7-day back to back cruises, covering the Christmas period. Felt the ship could have been more festive - only the Atrium looked Christmassy. Many families on board, which gave the ship a better feel at Christmas time. Carols in the Atrium on Christmas Eve, with sparkling wine and mince pies. Christmas Day we had 3 sittings for the traditional meal - very good. AND most guests dressed to impress that day.

By Boxing Day we had reached a lovely beach in Honduras - warm and sunny and it felt like Christmas was over.

Cabin Review

This is a very spacious outside cabin, with a large picture window. In need of an update. Situated ideally mid-ships and quiet now the aircon has been repaired.

The air conditioning works perfectly, but we spent the first week of our holiday having it looked at, as it constantly blew freezing cold air.
