The food was great, the programmes were fun as well, the weather was favourable, overall a positive experience. The ship is huge and quite a eye opener The cabin was compact but well kept The dining experience was ok, it would have been great if we could dine with our group, we were scattered all over the place, also the portions were small and did not fill us, dining on the 11th deck was better because you could eat more. Entertainment and activities was great, music got a bit much. Not enough African music, but yes, there was music for everyone just too much pop. The evening shows were spectacular and funny, really enjoyed that. The movies that were on show were old movies, can you not get the latest movies and perhaps upgrade the movie theatre to great sound quality. Ports and shore excursions were not the best, the staff assisting were very abrupt and rude. For a hospitality experience this needs major improvement especially the non-SA staff. Perhaps consider not charging for the WI-FI on the boat, this would be a great way to expose the experience on the cruise in real time. The kids would love to go on another trip Read Less

We were given the cruise as a gift, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The cabin was lovely, though we did have to request clean pool towels, as none were left in the cabin for us. The ship was magnificent! While some of the staff were somewhat surly and unfriendly, most of them were helpful and courteous. The entertainment was excellent in the Manhattan Bar! Five-star quality! We didn't really participate in any activities, though there was plenty advertised. We were a bit disappointed that all the shows had quite raunchy themes and acts. A show with simply good musicians and dancers (not showing all or most of their skin) would have sufficed. The shore excursion was lots of fun; though we did not know we were supposed to take cash onto the shore, in order to purchase whatever was on offer from the locals. It would have been helpful had there been an announcement in this regard. We do have a young daughter, though she was not able to join us, but she would have had the time of her life, and we are definitely planning to go again with her. All in all, a wonderful experience!!! Read Less
