Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Not fine dining,unless you pay extra but very good food,nicely served and presented. Enjoyed The Beach House where we cooked our own fillet steaks on hot rocks-that was very special and I would recommend it.Buffet good for breakfast and tea@ 3pm( scones and cream,cakes!!!) Overall very satisfied.

Our cabin steward Jay was fantastic.Service elsewhere was very good.Table service everywhere,even in the theatre.Found all staff very friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was massive( I have a slight mobility problem) so found it hard to get around some days.I think we will be looking to book a slightly smaller ship next time .

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were very pleased with the size of our cabin,a superior deluxe with a small seating area and balcony.The bed was amazingly comfortable.

Ship tip

Disembark yourself.Instead of leaving cases outside cabin on the night before,opt to take them yourself and you can be off the ship in 5 mins.

Ports of call

Southampton (London), England
