Walk on board it’s dark and colourless, drab dark wood walls, and following COVID an awful lot of formalities.
Spend a day or so, with an open mind. It will grow on you. The staff, seem hand picked to please you. The food, if repetitive over a few weeks, is good, really good. If you are of an age, go to the main dinning rooms for proper service. The buffet for quick and easy, mount your plate up, and many of em. But noisey and busy. See you night waiters service the tables at lunch, seems to demean them. They give so much good service. I don’t like deserts/ sweet, but prefers savoury and had more than one starter. No problem. There are plenty of Sun beds. After8 am theyre all reserved! Towels, books and no occupancy till after 11/12pm. Show time. Amateur crew ones and exceptional main guest ones. Musicians, excellent. Don’t write off the ships backing orchestra,( 4 of them). Brill. Booking these shows, like the Mexican restaurant, near impossible to book on the Wi-Fi. Find the Pool club girl. She will book it! To the left top of the pool bar, up the corner. The Spa! Never had one before……. WOW it works, felt worse, then over night, so SO GOOD.
The Ship. Cuts water well. Not as good as the Queens on Cunard, built by the same company., only built to cruise and not a liner.
Decent cleaner, maid guy. Lacking on Sugar to make tea etc.
