WOULD I CRUISE AGAIN ?? NO

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Southampton
How do you start to describe an experience which was a nightmare from start to finish!!

My advice to future travellers don't waste your money.

The Royal Caribbean company is all about making as much money out of their guests has possible ie photographs, drinks, shuttle bus charges, spa treatments,INTERNET CHARGES (TOTAL JOKE)and many more items which add to your final sea pass bill.

My daughter was bored throughout the cruise because once you have done every activity what else is there to do. The swimming pools if you can call them that because to be honest i have paddled in bigger rock pools on a beach.

Food OK but much the same every night just in a different sauce. Staff service again average nothing outstanding.

Beware to all travellers that intend to bring cigarettes back to UK don't fall for the discounts offered on board ship with their 15% sale because customs are out in force and they will be seized. My advice is to buy them in mainland More Spain so you abide by the correct amounts allowed.

My view it was BORING BORING BORING ETC Less
