My review is written from the viewpoint of somebody who booked a very cheap cruise with the most basic of cabins.
We boarded it at Southampton which was an absolute dream. I have never boarded a ship so quickly and with the so little fuss and the cruise line as well as the onshore team should be congratulated, We had an 11:00 a.m. boarding time and returned up. Expecting to be hanging around but in fact were enjoying our first cocktail on board at 10:50.
Upon arrival to the ship. We were guided to an area where we could deposit our hand luggage and directed to places where we could eat and relax. Even though a constant stream of announcements told us that are cabin would not be ready until 2:00 p.m.. given the size of the passenger list, I was quite surprised that they would have all the cabins ready this early. But actually this was exactly the case and 2:00 p.m. and announcement was made
