As this was our first cruise we were, naturally, apprehensive, especially as my wife needed assistance at airports etc. because she needs to use two sticks to help her walk. We need not have worried because Monarch airlines looked after  her all the way to Venice and the crew on board the ship gave her preferential access when queuing anywhere. The nicest experience we had was in the buffet restaurant when a waiter, Norman, noticed my wife struggled to get her food, took over and led her around the buffet tables filling her plate with her choices and then took her back to the table. He did this for all meal times during the week and my wife was really appreciative!

For both of us the whole week was both memorable and exciting.

I would also like to thank Cruise 118 for looking after us with excursions and info. the whole experience for us from start to finish was first class, thank you.

Buffet restaurant staff absolutely superb. A young waiter named Norman was someone who really loves his job and went that extra mile to help!
