No Worrys

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
Well after being very apprehensive about our cruise we were pleasantly surprised on arrival in Barbados we embarked on the ship and everything went smoothly we were in our cabin in no time and that was our first and best shock the cabins were much bigger than expected and the layout and cleanliness and overhaul impression was excellent the food on ship was brilliant as was the service from all staff and the entertainment team were so professional they took so much time and effort in making every show a perfect hit. Our cabin steward went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable making as many of the animal towels as possible and one other very important point i don't think you find a better atmosphere on most other ships the atmosphere around the whole ship was brilliant. On the negative there was a couple of very minor issues and that was

1 The lifts were quite frequently not working but again not a major issue as we would walk to another lift.

2 The grill More restaurant was in our opinion not worth paying the cover charge although the food was slightly superior the service was not and Orion restaurant service brilliant.

3 And lastly the retractable roof that was promised did not work this would not make any difference on normal Caribbean days but we had a whole day of rain and at that point people were asking if it could be closed to carry on sitting around the pool they were told they couldn't.

So very minor points. To sum up you could say you will always get better food, better accommodation, better service somewhere BUT I DONT THINK YOU WILL FIND BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY WHEN IT COMES TO CRUISING. Less
