virgin on the cruising

Sail Date: July 2010
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Southampton
As first time cruisers with a 7year old disabled child and a 16 year old drama queen, I would highly recommend a cruise holiday. From the moment we reached the terminal, car and bags were wisked away and escorted to check-in in under 10 minutes, wow thats a good start.

Staff, right throughout the ship were friendly, and very professional both on and off board,if we bumped into staff off ship, they would say hi and ask were we ok and were to go to eat, shop etc. Travelling with a disabled child is awarkard, but we had no problem if fact a great weight was lifted off us, we could relax and have our dinner in peace knowing she was in great hands with the staff in the kids club and they got her to participate in all the activities going, she was not left to one side which has happened when we travelled before to hotels in spain and tunisia. As for the drama queen (16 years) we only had dinner with her twice inthe whole 2 weeks, she made friends in the older kids club, and was More constantly running around going somewhere, dont know where she got the energy from. In the whole 2 weeks, we still did not get to do everything on board as there was soo much to do and everyting was different each day from the food to the entertainment.

Currently, I am cruising around looking for a cruise holiday for next year, as my daughter said it was the best holiday ever, which is a good compliment from her.

The Scully family loved our first cruise holiday on the Grand Princess. Malaga - ok Barcelona - lovely Monte - Carlo, loved it - would have loved to see it at night. Rome - dident like it way too hot Naples - nope, wont go back Adjaccio - loved it. Barcelona - great for shopping. Less

could do with more hanging space, wardrobe large, but only one hanging rail could put another one it underneath.
