Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
MDR was fabulous, set dining which suited us so you knew who you were sitting with and who was waiting on you. We had a 4 table but the other couple never showed. Hubby doesn't eat carbs and they gave him exactly wot he asked for. Fantastic service from waiters

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Saw 3 people go in pool in the whole 11 nites, very cold pool. The hot tubs are fab but they are at the back of the ship 2 floors down and the bar was never open - wasted opportunity there

Commedians they had were old and their jokes were rubbish, wasn't that fussed about the shows either
