Relaxing Voyage to Canary Islands

Sail Date: October 2010
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Southampton
The voyage to the Canary Islands was quite relaxing with half of the days at sea. The service at the main dining room was excellant as was the cabin service. We had no trouble with embarkation. The food was in general very good with the exception of lunch. Wen the ship was docked, the main dining room was closed for lunch leaving only the Oceanview cafe or the Bristo at 5 which charges an additional $5.00 US per person. The lunches at the Cafe were generally dried out resulting from the heat lamps used to keep the meats warm. We opted to dine at the Bristo once we realized that the food quality would not improve at the cafe. The breakfasts at the cafe were of high quality.

The ship is new and large. There is insufficient seating at the cafe and the pool side lounges are very close to one another, leaving one with the feeling that there are just too many passangers on board. Over all the service on the ship was excellent. Our cabin was large as was the balcony as we stayed in a More Royal Suite.

The excursions were fun and informative. The fitness center was clean and had every possible piece of equipment desired. The glass show was excellent. The entertainment was inconsistant, but it is to be expected on a cruise. If you do not wish to have loads of kids running around the outdoor pool unsupervised, chose a time when there are no school vacations. We did not know there was a school vacation known as "half term" in October.
Overall, the voyage was fun and relaxing. Less

Cabin review: RS1607 Royal Suite

Royal Suite had large balcony and great views. It was a quiet suite. We could not have asked for more.
