As a first time cruise for me, it had many things going for it. It was a short cruise, no children, modern decor, no gratuities.
The restaurant food and service was excellent. The cabin, Sea view, was spacious and the cleaning staff very attentive. Poor them though, having to scrape the Black Soap off the hand basin each day. Not quite sure who would be purchasing some of the items on offer in each cabin. My husband enthusiastically ripped open each and every one of them, so I have probably inadvertently purchased the Red Octopus, Brass Effect Sextant Bottle Opener, Aromatherapy Package and the Pink Dildo.
A special mention for Unathi, the Server in the Test Kitchen and Alexandar, the Serbian Server, in the Wake.
