Review summary

Amazing amazing ship, from the minute you board you are made to feel special, your every need and more is taken care of. Already starting to look at booking our next Edge cruise, I really don't think you could get any better, perhaps similar but I can't see what could be better really.

Food and Dining

Normandy was our favourite, although all were excellent, high standard and quality of food and service. Le Petit Chef was a fun and excellent experience a must try with delicious food and one of the best steaks I have ate.

The Martini Bar

A great buzzy atmoshere with fab bartenders who put on a great little show a couple of times throughout the night, showing off their bottle throwing and cocktail making skills accompanied with a light show

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Yoga studio not large enough, far too small to accommodate everyone wanting to take part myself and others were turned away as full, this was an 08:00 class. The rooftop garden would be a great space to hold this. We felt the rooftop garden was under utilised, not much happening there at all apart from showing a couple of movies each day. Not many people using it. Jacuzzis and pool area excellent always a lounger available e even on sea day and Jacuzzis not over crowded always room, and sometimes empty.

The Grand Plaza

Great buzzy place.... Good atmosphere.

Solarium

Nice chiil area and good to get out the sun for a while, always plenty of loungers available.

Fitness Center

3 out of 5

Fitness studios too small, classes like Yoga could take place on the rooftop garden as it is a nice activity to do outdoors rather than in.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Entertainment was good, did not see a magician which would have been a good act to have for entertainment.

Tiffany

Ship Quality

Spotless throughout! Great job.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great size, good size bathroom and shower with all toiletries provided. Infinity balcony like a lot of others undecided whether preferable to traditional balcony, more privacy but not really a balcony feel. Bed very comfortable and huge. Meticulously cleaned each day and turndown each evening with fresh towels provided morning and night. Great being able to operate blinds, lights, air con etc from your phone via the app while you lie in bed.

Ship tip

Try everything, so much to enjoy try your best to experience it all.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

No excursions stayed 4 days prior to cruise. Amazing, enchanting city so much to do, see with great rustic, authentic places to eat and great shopping, it has everything.

Monte Carlo, Monaco

5 out of 5
A beautiful place, with great sight seeing and people watching from Cafe Paris, casino Square. Monaco was special to visit cathedral and Palace. Streets are spotless.

Cannes, France

5 out of 5
Lovely town to stroll around and along the promenade. Had coffee and cake on the terrace of the famous Carlton Hotel which was lovely.

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

4 out of 5
A nice little town with a lovely cathedral, Market and shops.... Can go to other beach resorts too.

Barcelona, Spain

3 out of 5
Stayed overnight before flight home.... Done hop on hop off bus which was lengthy, stunning cathedral Sigrid Famille, well worth seeing. Found the city in generl far too busy, which did not make it enjoyable and you have to have constant wits about you when wandering around due to pickpockets which appears to be a huge problem.... would not return.
