Reviewed By: on
The service from the staff/crew, the food, the cleanliness of the ship, the itinerary, the entertainment were all fantastic but, for us, the ship was a bit too big and, in places, a bit too noisy eg the music around the swimming pool area and in the Windjammer Restaurant. There was a lack of quiet lounge areas and the library was small. Despite these very few slight annoyances we would book again, especially if we were taking all of the family/grandchildren. The children's facilites and clubs looked fantastic, there were large tables in the restaurants that could seat 10 people and the baby-sitting services sounded second to none.

Quality of Food
We mostly ate in the restaurants where you are served, rather than in self-service. The salads and fresh fruits selection were a healthy options, to avoid piling on the pounds.
