Review summaryLovely ship, lovely friendly captain and crew. Can't wait to get back on board in 4 months time.
Food and Dining
The Glass House
Wine tasting evening. Good wine and good food, would have been 5 star if the music could have been turned down. Most of the visitors that evening complained about the music and we were given a full refund. Would definitely go back when the music problem has been sorted out.
As we had a suite we had our breakfast here, it was lovely, not a large selection on the breakfast menu but enough. Ate twice here in the evening and the extra charge was well worth it, good food and good service.
Same as Meridian service a bit slower as less waiting staff.
Good food, good service (although a lot less waiting staff therefore service a lot slower than on previous cruises). Couple of ties food was only luke warm.
Ok at night for hot chocolate and late night snacks. Bit of a bun fight at other meal times. We avoid this place at all costs.
Great wine tasting evening, good food, good wine and lovely staff. Would have been 5 stars if it was not for the loud music blasting in from the Atrium which could not be turned down in The glass House.
Serenity Pool & Bar
Love this adult only area, gets a bit busy on sea days. Still get people reserving sunbeds and not returning for hours on end.
Reception staff always friendly and helpful.
Excellent photo package, £99 for unlimited photos.
Has a couple of trips cancelled, went to try and book something else and the young man there could not have been more disinterested, when we asked what was available he just said go and look and when we had found something he said fully booked - on at least 3 occasions. We gave up in the end. This is attitude is unusual as normally staff really helpful and keen to book another trip for us. Have now been looking at tours with other operators.
The Live Lounge
Good venue but dies get very crowded. Packed on last bingo game especially.
The Limelight Club
Best venue on board, great acts especially Chesney Hawkes. Good menu, but if you don't fancy anything on there I believe you can order from restaurant menu.
The Crow's Nest
Nice quiet area in the day time but busy in the evenings. Nice to sit, relax and listen to the music
The Cookery Club
Been to the Cookery Club a few times, usually very good with good food and chef. We tried the Thai Street Food course, really good, food a bit bland, could have done with spicing up a bit but appreciate some people do not like spicy food.Was spoilt this time by one mouthy passenger who thought he knew more than the resident chef. We left as soon as we had eaten as had enough of listening to him.
Lovely new Atrium after refit, more seating area and very relaxing and comfortable.
