Review summary

Excellent cruise, staff very helpful and friendly, food fantastic, entertainment good, Although I don’t think there is enough seats to just sit down to rest while walking around the ship without going into a bar or coffee shop etc

Focus Photo Gallery

Photographers, most were just quickly taking photos not checking if eyes were open or closed etc. having purchased a pre package before boarding on USB I expected more photography than there was available and better quality than what was taken. Photographers should check their photos not just click and go and leave you with photos with closed eyes

Casino Royale

5 out of 5

Loved this casino although only takes US$ in machines or have to convert money to vouchers to play.
