This was our first HOME sailing and it is much better then an airport holiday. Although its a big ship, getting about was very easy.

The food was quite varied and our waiter did ask if we would like more courses, but it was only WARM. Hot food should be just that!!!! All food came plated and covered but if he was serving other tables first it would only be warm when presented. Buffet in The Windjammer was fine but with so many people on board I don't like pushing through people to get served!

Having taken an upgrade to a Junior Suite, the cabin was good. Plenty of wardrobe space and a bath as well as a shower.

On sailing days it was hard to get a lounger as people STILL put towels on them ! Lots of things to do during the day and the nightly quiz in the bar was good fun.

Enjoyed the cruise, but where the ship moors is a let down. Apart from Madeira and Vigo, the ship is in docks with no views!
