Cork 3 May 2011 from Southampton

Sail Date: May 2011
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Dover
We liked the stateroom and the quality build of the ship. It certainly has a wow factor.

iLounge was brilliant with really good staff - computer courses were good and entertaining too.

Smoking - there is a no smoking policy which does not appear to be enforced. People were smoking on their balconies throughout the cruise. Smoking is permitted in the Sky Observation Lounge in a corner on the port side which makes the whole lounge unusable for non-smokers.

Food - (in the main dining room)disappointing. One starter was just a wedge of iceberg lettuce with an ordinary tomato sliced over it - no other garnish. Lobster bisque tasted as though it came out of a packet. Did not dare to try the speciality restaurants.

Oceanview cafe - beverage stations were badly laid out leading to queues of frustrated people. Supplies of teabags kept running out.

Staff - not very motivated, some quite surly/miserable.

Cruise Director - where did they get him from? More I've seen amateur MCs do better.

Entertainment - otherwise very enjoyable. Less

Cabin review: 1C Deluxe Veranda

Good room. Nice large bathroom. Balcony good. Hallway smelt of urine.
