No, it wasnt in a bad condition at all just in need of a little refreshing. - All the public rooms have had new carpets and some have new furniture. - Some cabins were refurbished but not all. - Revamp of Plantation restaurant - Revamp of "Connexions" bar. - A general lick of paint around the ship. - Repainting of the outside of the ship. - New external thruster.

I was on its pre refit cruise last October coming back to the UK before it went off to Germany for a couple of weeks and even then it wasn't as bad as you seem to imply. All ships have to go in for regular refits even if it's just to replace carpets and change layouts around to suit passenger needs as they see fit. It's a nice ship so don't worry, just sit back and look forward to a good holiday!

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
