I have just returned from a holiday of a lifetime - it was fantastic!! As some of you may already know (I have mentioned it in plenty of reviews during the past few months , that I was going on a cruise) , and after waiting (impatiently) for almost ten months , the time arrived on Saturday 5th June and lasted until Saturday 19th June , and so my holiday has quickly and sadly been and gone! I had never been on a cruise before , let alone gone away from home for more than one week , let alone a fortnight , and now after a brilliant time , I am very sad that's it's over! So to help me get over my post-holiday-blues , I thought that I would share my experience with you!! (Just to warn you , it is going to be a very long review , as I have so much to say!)
Right...where shall I begin............ from the very beginning I guess.
So , last year , having never been abroad before , I was moaning that I wanted to go on a foreign holiday , so one day whilst out shopping , I walked into a travel agents and picked up a load of holiday brochures. My mum had always wanted to go on a cruise but hadn't been and so after flicking through a couple of brochures , was getting quite tempted to actually go. We then decided that it would be good if a group of us went (these were the very early days of the planning, and me like an excited child , was really hoping that the answer would be a great big yes!) So we discussed it with my sister and her boyfriend , and my aunt and uncle , and we were all (well I wasn't - I was all for it!) debating , shall we shan't we. In the end we decided on a two week mediterranean cruise with Royal Caribbean International. I was so excited when we had confirmed the booking , yet I still had ten months to wait for the time to come.
Great Balcony , Very clean , spacious , Good selection of television channels , lots of mirrors, REALLY comfy bed
Went up the rocks and to the cave ; incredibly beautiful views! Beware of the monkeys! Plenty of shops , although was too much like a British shopping street and so it had a lot of shops that were the same back home and so the shopping experience there was boring. People nice and spoke both English and Spanish
Very hot. Went on a tour bus around the town. Stopped at a beach for ten minutes. Funny little place.
LOVED here! Very glamourous. Had to get a boat from the ship to the shore. Had nice beach. Nice place to shop.
Loved here - lovely city with beautiful sights. Went on a tour bus. Good shopping place - beware of the pick-pockets.
Stopped here on a sunday ; most places were closed. We didn't have much time here , and only got to see the old place , which I found boring as we seemed to be just walking around houses. Would have liked to have seen the 'party side'.
I really liked her ; especially for shopping. Really hot and was interesting to see the main transport was by tram. Nice people.
