Review summary

Absolutely amazing. Freestyle cruising is definitely the way forward. This cruise had the option of posh dining. Or informal. Cannot wait until my next one. You can book this while on your cruise and they more or less give you back your deposit in onboard spending

A bit chaotic at the airport. But once on the coach everything was great. Dare i say it. Plain sailing 🤣

Food and Dining

Food was lovely. Lots of choice. Drinks must have been weak though as we were drinking alcohol from lunchtime until 11pm with little effect.

Great size. Always found a seat. Staff at the bar tidying up a bit noisy. But did t spoil our enjoyment

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff cannot do enough for you. Everyone had a genuine smile. The staff seemed really happy in their jobs. They work really hard and appear to have long hours as some staff we seen at breakfast were still working, albeit in a different role. A really happy bunch of people.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was immaculate. Staff continually tidying up tables and cleaning floors. Great infection control with the handwash stations all over the boat. Also the "happy.happy. washy washy girls at every entrance to the buffet.
