Sorry for this being a long review but I tried to cover most of what we did and how we found it.
The holiday started well at the airport, travelling premier class with TUI we were whisked through check in and security, it was the last we saw of our hold luggage until it arrived at our cabin. We were greeted on the plane with a glass of bubbly before take off, we were glad to have booked premier as it was a 9 hour flight the longest we have ever done. There was plenty of room to move around in your seat, video's to watch and plenty to eat and drink.
On arrival at the Dominican Republic, going through security was just as fast as check in at home, signing in at the ship was fast and straight forward, if you can travel premier when with TUI it saves a lot of time at check in's and security.
The cabin being at the front of ship it gets a lot of movement when rough. It is one of the smaller deluxe cabins with a fixed double bed and is more square in shape than most. There was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space for two people.
