Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was easy to navigate and I found it clean and Im into cleanliness.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was great however deck chairs coud be heard scraping on the deck above. Our room creaked every night which was a little annoying. Our a/c wasnt cold however once we finally told someone they fixed straight away. Thing we found disappointing was we always had to ask for toilet rolls ran empty heaps of times and cabin stewart never replaced till we asked or went hunting. Body soap also ran out then we found out ship had run out so gave us hair shampoo to use instead of body wash?? Loved how our top bunk came out of roof so more head space for my 17 year old on the top bunk however the bottom bed was lounge converted to bed and so light was in the way and kids kept hitting whist sleeping. Loved our balcony though.

Ship tip

Just relax and enjoy its great

They wasted our morning as we had to collect our passports if they distributed them to passengers on the sea days this was prevented unnecessary lines and waiting.
