We chose the ship because it was all inclusive, new and had the right itinerary. Embarkation was pretty straight forward.Pretty easy to find cabin which was excellent.All facilities in cabin you need( except for a net curtain- which they are probably going to fix)Lovely touches in the cabin,heated floor in bathroom,lighted vanity mirror and lit magnifying mirror.great tea and coffee making.All food was amazing- never had a single dish that wasn’t tasty or well presented.Service by all crew was very good.Included wines a high standard.Exceptional meal in Marble & Co.The entertainment was not what we expected - a few excellent guests-Lis- Marie Holmes’s& Josh.Also had a lovely singalong with Dennis & Lydia in Explora Lounge.Shame there is no coffee lounge open in the evening - found it difficult to mingle & socialise.Most of all I missed dancing to live music, disco was OK but didn’t start until 2315.Weather was against us getting into lots of ports but didn’t see any effort to increase onboard activities for extra sea days.Fitness facilities spot - on.

Cabin Review

As mentioned very spacious cabin with plenty of room - drawers and hanging space.Lovely walk in wardrobe with vanity area -Dyson hairdryer.Lovely balcony with chaise longe.Great coffee and tea making options.
