Itinerary: Caribbean

We were very pleased with the whole cruising experience, and in particular with the ship, which was Fred Olsen's Braemar. Having flown to Miami we boarded the ship quickly and efficiently. We had a meal and were underway around 10pm . Our cabin was excellent. We had deliberately booked one with a balcony and we couldn't have been more pleased. During the cruise the staff were marvellous, very friendly and very efficient.

Food in the restaurants was good and varied and there was a wide selection of bars to go to in the evenings. We requested second sitting for dinner and were allocated a table in the Grampian restaurant, which was a new addition to the ship. Breakfast and lunch could be taken in any of the three restaurants, but dinner was at your allocated table. We rarely had to queue and the maitre d' always found a table for us, you never wandered round looking for somewhere to sit.

Cabin was excellent, with bins emptied and room tidied twice a day, towels changed whenever you wanted, beds turned down at night with a chocolate on the pillow - lovely.

Onboard activities were varied, proboably quite typical but as this was our first cruise we have no comparison. Quoits, bowls, bridge classes, painting classes, dolphin racing, ice sculpture demo etc. There was a library, card room and internet room.
