So we picked this cruise to surprise my mother and sisters who were taking the same cruise. Mostly Italian and Spanish guests onboard, who are quite rude. We did our research so knew it was a small older ship.

Booking: We booked a package with flights and transfers through our TA. Any questions we had, had to go through our TA who would often get 3/4 different answers from RCL Customer services, so there was a lot of back and forth. Next time we will book direct.

Flights: Were from Manchester with Jet2. We stayed over night at a premier inn close to the airport and dropped our hold luggage off on the Sat evening. Sunday morning, off to security and into departures. Manchester airport, esp terminal 1 needs some TLC. But very easy departure.

Cabin Review

8571, as stated room was clean and fine except a rubbish shower. But all in all a fine room for limited amount of time spent in it.
