Sail Date: Jan 2023

We chose this as it was a No fly cruise to Cuba. We knew it was cheap with many added expensive extras. 30 year old ship. Most passengers over 70, some on disability scooters. Too few sun loungers so fights broke out. Borough Market was mayhem at popular meal times and windows all fogged up.

All junior staff were great. Very clean ship, good choice of food superb waiters.

Unable to see outside from most of the public areas and restaurants. Curtained windows and fogged up double glazing. Although most passengers didn't seem to care where they were.

Cabin Review

Our most expebsive refurbished cabin had rusting broken rail and dripping waste pipe on balcony. It was very spacious with separate WC from bath and separate shower. But not everything refurbished lots very old fashioned and worn. Comfortable bed, dreadful TV. Nice sized balcony with two chairs but no sun lounger. Extras with this level suite included fresh fruit, canapés and in-cabin breakfast from a very limited menu.

Our cabin 11121 was directly beneath

smokers corner and our sleep was regularly which manager/director failed to address.

Port Reviews


Great overnight stay.

Vastly overpriced excursions. E.g American car ride £130 each. 3 people in car whereas they could be picked up outside the terminal for £100 per car!!!

Night show parasien cabaret left the ship at 8 pm for a 10 minute drive for 10 pm show. Very cramped tables, one free drink. Excursion staff got best table

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

£22 fare on a minibus to a beach with no facilities and pay extra for sunbed and umbrella.
