Just returned home from a 5 day mini sampler cruise around Europe, My husband and I are total cruise virgins so were nervous with what to expect, This ship being one off the largest in the world holding around 4500 people!! 


Absolutely cannot fault it the staff where fantastic it was always clean and always something going on no chance off being bored or hungry here!! 


THE FOOD!!!! Very very impressed considering the amount off people they have to cater for the food is at an extremely high standard the evening meal in the main dining room is amazing you feel like a king or queen eating....I'm a vegetarian and our table manager, Miller was so kind and he remembered my dietary needs all week he would Even bring me out 2 choices to choose from!! Fantastic absolutely fantastic lovely to get all dressed up and enjoy company off others. 


Cant wait a it to book the next one really recommend itBig Smile
