Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was nice with a good number of restaurants to choose from. We particularly enjoyed Cagneys but we had a dining package. It would have been very expensive without a dining package. The queues at the buffet were long and impossible to get seating at breakfast so we didn’t try and eat here at all as the main dining rooms were excellent.

Magnum's Champagne & Wine Bar

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
We had some outstanding service from our cabin steward, Ganaseian as well as Lyn and Arthur in Magnums, Bob in Lotus garden and Annelle in Indigo. The waiters in the bars were good unlike the barmen who where not at all friendly and made you feel like they were doing you a favour just by serving you. This was different at Magnums, the entire staff were so friendly here including the barmen.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was kept very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Great size deck, excellent steward. BUT the noise was terrible particularly from midnight to about 2am when there was the constant noise of dragging furniture. We were under the pool deck and guess this was the time they tidy up the furniture. I would definitely be more aware next time to book under cabins rather than a public area.

Ship tip

Getting off the ship in ports take ages. Best to book ship tours to be first off otherwise you can lose a lot of port time just waiting to get off the ship.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Easy walk off was an absolute shambles. It took forever. Ever experienced a cruise like it.
