One has not sailed on this cruise itinerary yet, we will be in 8 days from now though!! Myself has endured a lifetime of experiences onboard cruise ships, therefore I has an insight and understanding of the ever more demanding of cruise companies and the cruise liner industry. Myself along with fellow guests who are cruise experts and have enjoyed every minute of sailing onboard these fantastic and inovative technolgy ships will however say, the standard of service, the sheer "luxury", the glamours shows and entertainment, pioneering broadway and west end shows and 5* food have somewhat decreased over 20 years; even more popular with families, affordable even for the working class, cruise ships are getting bigger and bigger up to the point that onboard a ship is like a city, is it too big? Is this why standards have fallen? Who knows? It still today remains a mystery but what i can tell you is, a cruise experience is an experience of a lifetime, it is still luxury, food is outstanding, shows are excellent, onboard facilities are phenominal, family friendly, accomodation is somewhat OK you would find the rooms standard for all 5* hotels - porky if you are used to villa and luxury condo holidays like myself, but one has to say that your holiday is your holiday, your room is where you go to sleep, really does it matter?? NO!!!! Sum up about a cruise in one sentence would be, its a 5* floating hotel, a new day is a new destination, pay 1 price, you only have to unpack once and you are seeing and exploring 8-10 different ports, your entertainment and food is included, along with your stateroom, a cruising holiday is a holiday!

P.S if anyone has any questions, tips, advice about cruising, please it would be my upmost pleasure to assist you, jamie x.
