Where to start?

My first praise goes to the entertainment team. So professional and polished. Good singers, dancers, actors. Much much better than anything on TV. Certainly West End standard - and probably then some.
My second accolade goes to our cabin team (Alisa and Adonis). Friendly, fun, efficient. Hard workers and yet somehow always relaxed and ready to help.
Next is dining. Great food - choice of formal/informal - extensive menus, quick service.

Then comes the bars. Never had so many cocktails (and mocktails)! Great staff - they remembered our names. Always available and always friendly and efficient.

Overall, a gret start to crusing and we'll be doing it again.

Cruise Positives:
Just about everything was superb - much higher than our already high expectations. I've marked Good rather than excellent for the facilities and cabin as the ship is getting a bit old now. However, the made up for this.

Cruise Negatives:
Tender ashore process not always well planned - delays disembarking. (Ignore the cildren friendly rating - it's an adult-only ship)
