Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
4 of us went on this cruise for my friends birthday in cabins 7086 and 7088.

We left Manchester after a delay which meant we arrived in Barbados late and didn't get a chance to look around....the ship itself is huge, yes its a little worn but nothing excessive. We were upgraded to deck 7, the room itself was fine, lots of wardrobe space, big comfy bed, no problems at all.

The food was really nice,ive had better on other ships but it was still very nice. We ate in the Grill one night for my friends birthday and it was wonderful.8 delicious courses, very attentive waiters and lovely wine.

the ate in the Orion restaurant every night and never once experienced any sewage smells that have been mentioned.

the staff were all fantastic, easy to chat to, very attentive and very funny.

The only problem we encountered was when the ship was at sea, it was a bit rocky, but to be honest i expected it, took a travel calm and that was that.

we visted some More fantastic places, the highlight was the Duns waterfalls.

I have read some of the negative reviews from people supposedly onboard at the same time as me and all i can say is they must have either been on a differnet ship or just moan for the sake of it, as i could not fault a thing.

Our cabin steward was brilliant, always smiling, always attentive, made patterns with our nightwear...made us laugh everytime Less
