Boarding (Arriving to the Terminal to getting to our room):

When we embarked it was a very smooth and good process. We got out the car with out luggage and a porter whipped it away from us to save us the trouble of taking it with us. We then went on into the terminal, upon arriving the required checks were done once it we were ready to go onto get out boarding photos e.t.c we were given a card that would then be show on a screen and then tell use to join the queue. This was a long queue but didn't seem to be a long wait. Once that was complete we moved onto security. Our hand luggage was put through and we were scanned that was a very quick process. So then we went and boarded the ship, upon boarding we got a photograph with two suitcases patterned with a British flag. Then we headed to the buffet (The Horizon Restaurant) This is were I had my first meal, it was brilliant as they had a wide selection catering for every need. We then heard over the tannoy that our rooms were ready so we made our way there. Once there we were shocked at how immaculate it was the only disappointment was the balcony could've been bigger. Then we wondered the ship to get our bearings.

The Ship (The good and the bad):

Cabin Review

Brilliant, very nice cabin steward and the room was super practical.

Port Reviews

Southampton

Its were we boarded the ship so why wouldn't we be happy

La Coruna

Went to the aquarium and our tour guide left us whilst we were at the toilet, so we went around ourselves however we found him again and he took us to other places.

La Rochelle-La Pallice

Didn't do an excursion but it was a brilliant port and you can also go and take a boat to fort boyard, which we didn't do.
