Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin:

Flights delayed going and returning to Gatwick. We paid premium seating but did not even sit with each other there or back. Cabin on 8th deck with balcony didn't have the usual wow factor. Cabin stewards were excellent.Been on cruises around the Med. First trip to Caribbean. I will not be rushing back there.

Didn't like the ship. Had better food and the entertainment was so rubbish. Thought there just might be a Caribbean evening. Sampling the food. No. Never heard anything Or ate anything remotely Caribbean.

Live bar? No one was ever Live in there. Just virtual TV. The lead singers in the theatre just shouted instead of singing. I love Pavarotti singing but didn't expect to hear his voice blaring out Too loudly from top deck.

Cabin Review

glad I had a balcony. Spent a lot of time on it with a drink. Entertainment certainly did NOT entertain me. Cabin service was great.
