  • Sail Date: Jun 2011
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean


just back from a 7 day cruise around the med and i had to write my review as i found the reviews helpfull before i left

first the ship WHOW!!! it was our first family cruise kids 11/13 years old the ship we could not fault it, spotless and pleanty of things to do on it

the slide open 10-4 pm they had great fun on it

the pools were not v big and on the days we were at sea there were packed which for their size there is no way the filters can cope with the amount of people so avoid the pools when v busy or u will get a bad stomack bug also the jacuzzi s are the same too many people go into them for them to cope ie a lot of people were in sick bay

they had to empty the main pool on the day we were sailing past tunisa as it was filthy

the food for our first cruise was grand pleanty of food all day long the kids were happy so we were also

the dinner at night was just ok v small portions and normally not v hot as all pre pared

the sevice we could not fault EXCELLENT

we had the drinks package and im glad i done this before i cruised

a lot of guests were complaining about the prices of things ect ect

we had all drinks /cocktails/ice cream and mini bar for the 4 of us it was well worth the price as we each had a smothie in the morning a couple of cocktail before lunch coffee ice cream beers cokes for the kids more ice cream more cocktails and wine then at night IT WAS GREAT

The entertaimnent was in italian /spanish but that was ok we got the drift

the cabin was inside ,done our job as we hardley spent time in it

we stayed on board the day we docked in palma majorca and we were almost the only people on board it was great and we got the spa treatments 60% off IT WAS GREAT

To summerise our family trip on the cruise im glad i got the drinks package (411) the kids had great fun going up ordering by themselfs not paying cash haveing as much as they wanted (so did the adults) if i hadnt got that package it would have being different holiday

i would go again it was worth every penny back to work now to save for the next one and yeah back to the gym to get rid of the weight we all put on

happy days
