Although I am new to cruising and do not have any experience on other cruise ships, I can honestly say that my partner and I have come back from our cruise feeling like we had the holiday of a life time.
>From arriving at the port in Southampton everything went very smoothly, hardly no queuing and we were on the ship within about 20 -30 minutes from the time we parked the car.
Once on the ship we were surprised at how luxurious the ship was, obviously some places more so than others, the Centrum especially was something that I was fascinated with.
We settled in and decided to walk around the ship to see all it had to offer, we were very impressed. The service and reception we got from the staff was excellent, they do a very good and professional job.
Getting on and of the ship at ports of call was very hassle free too, the only time we had to queue was to get back on the ship but that was only if a lot of coaches all arrived at the same time.
The food was excellent, we ate in the windjammer café most of the time, although the dinner in the Romeo & Juliet dinning room was outstanding and the service was the same, my partner had the lobster one evening and the waiter offered him another one once he had finished he’s first.
The only thing I would have to complain about is the pricing of the drinks and goods on board, they had changed the currency from dollars to pounds, which worked out to be a lot more expensive. But I think they will have many complaints about this and may reconsider.
So in total it was a great holiday and I would recommend it to anyone, especially if it is going to be your first cruise.
Happy Cruising :-)
