Sail Date: Sep 2023

The greatest disappointment was the food which was universally poor and sometimes inedible. Even the specialist (££) restaurants did not have the highest standards.

We had splashed out on a suite and expected a bit of pampering but other than priority boarding and a couple of cabin gifts we got nothing (£20 for drinks with the Officers? £20pp per day to use the private Retreat deck? £30pp for the best restaurant?)

We didn't like the ship which has a counter-intuitive cramped layout (e.g. no stairs next to some lifts so you can't nip up and down and have to wait a long time for a busy lift).

Cabin Review

Our suite was well presented and looked after and the bathroom with jacuzzi, shower & separate loo were great. We enjoyed the free champagne, chocolates, fruit and White Stuff soaps etc..

But: The balcony is very narrow for a suite cabin, the overbed lighting is not very relaxing, the decor (brown laminate) a bit tired. Some nights at sea there was a lot of uncomfortable vibration. Suite breakfast (in the Epicurian) was nicely served but of no better quality than the self serve restaurant and it closed at 9.30am which is too early for people on holiday.
