Review summary

A very good experience, only criticism is that the free WiFi is accessible for one device only at any one time, so with 4 devices between us, had to keep logging on and off which was very irritating. The spa deck, available to suite and concierge passengers does not have deck hands to help move heavy sun beds, but is a very quiet and restful location.

Easy and without hassle.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All restaurants efficiently run, no problems getting table for 2, which we prefer.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Played Trivia every day, great fun and met some lovely people.


3 out of 5
Small ships’ entertainment is always limiting and not on the same scale as larger ships. What we did see, however, was quite entertaining and well staged.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All staff and crew very attentive, polite and caring.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everywhere spotless and well maintained. Public loos kept clean constantly.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Plenty of hanging space in walk in closet. Loads of cupboard and shelf space and we don’t travel light! Very clean and promptly cleaned on vacating daily.

Ship tip

Suite passengers have access to secluded deck through the spa. Not well advertised.
