Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Plenty of places to eat and drink - Snack shack and island buffet for casual eating whilst Gallery 47 and 47 provides excellent formal eating - we did not try the surf and turf - all the food was of a high quality and well presented - plenty of choice and the service was excellent - our glasses were always filled and a wide variety of all inclusive drinks - Ques were short at the bar with good service

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
My daughter loved the shows in the evening and my partner the comedy and quizzes - the day time band wasn't as good as The Rascals on The Majesty - did the golf and lots of swimming

Entertainment

5 out of 5
My daughter was in the front row on every show and loved the back stage tour on the last day - For me the shows were good although some strange interpretations such as Toulouse Le Trech being over 6 foot tall. The bands were ok and the dances - quizzes and comedy were good. Film selection could be more up to date - bit cool in the evening

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room was well looked after - a different towel toy on the bed each night for my daughter - bar staff were efficient and pleasant - restaurant staff very attentive - always filing our glasses
