Cabin:

We chose this cruise as we wanted to see the islands of Greece and Turkey. The staff on this ship were so friendly and helpful, especially the hospitality we received from 'Samiro' who worked the pool deck during the day and then the Squid and Anchor bar in the evening, such a gentleman and was very attentive to us.. The food on the ship was lovely and there was always something to cater for everyone. For the amount of people on this ship at any 1 time, we never felt like the bar/restaurant/pool area was over crowded, there was always somewhere for us to sit and plenty of room to move around. We always had plenty of time to get off and on the ship when it was docked each day and there were plenty of excursions to choose from or we could just get off and walk around for a few hours before getting back on the ship for some sun bathing. I would 100% recommend anyone considering a cruise to check this one out.

Cabin Review

We had an inside cabin on deck 9 which was very spacious and well air conditioned, the housekeepers were in the room often each day to make sure the cabins were clean and we had fresh towels. There was loads of Storage/Wardrobe space for us to unpack our cases and hangers were also provided, the safety deposit box was free to use and there was also a mini fridge in the cabin.
