Boarding the ship was fast & easy as we were nearly the last to arrive, having flown with tui from gatwick. the ship itself is ok, but is an old ship now & has seen better days (shall we say). The cabin was good & have no complaints about that & as usual the cabin stewardess was very good. however one very disappointing feature about the cabin was the tv, it should have had 4 or 5 news type channels, none worked at all the whole week. this was not just our cabin the whole ship had no satellite connection at all. The food was ok but at times was not that hot although using the orion waiter service dinning room every evening. no problems in getting wine refills on the all inclusive at the table. the gala night was a little disappointing not too many in formal dress & nothing different on the menu!! The entertainment, singers & dancers were as good as we have seen & this was out 27th cruise. the ports of call were ok except do not expect too much if you walk into arricife town in formentera. all in all just ok.

Just OK

Cabin Review

Cabin 5103
No complaints about the actual cabin although could have done with a few more drawers. one major complaint the tv had no satellite connection the whole week. this was not just our cabin, the whole ship. the ship had been in for service 10 days prior & would have expected this fault not have been rectified. Very poor as the only thing to watch were films which were not on all the time with long gaps between.
