Review summary

We opted for a Veranda cabin and it was well designed with storage under the bed for luggage.  There were several benefits that came with the Veranda cabin, such as more free drinks than I could use.  Cabin crew all very friendly and helpful.

The entertainment offered was varied with something for just about everyone.  Though I did find the volume in the theatre overwhelming.

Food was great.  Meals were not huge, but you could order more than one if you wanted.

All staff on board, very friendly and helpful
