Full Review:

We decided on a cruise because we were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary, We stayed on the 7th Deck in a deluxe room, the cabin was spacious and clean, the bathroom had a bath with a shower over it.

We received a letter stating they were aware we were celebrating our anniversary and it proceeded to tell us what options we could buy to celebrate it such as flowers, chocolates etc..bit disappointing they couldn't even be bothered to give us a bottle of wine or something as a gesture of celebration they just wanted to sell to us

The air con wasn't very cold and when I asked the cabin steward if it could be turned up, he mimed to me it was because i was over weight that i still felt hot.
"it is because you are" ...then moved his arms out to his sides...he didnt get a tip, i was very upset by this.

The "west end shows" were popular but they were not really "acting" just singing songs from shows. There was a visiting comic who was entertainging

Sharp notes in the Horizons bar were a excellent duo and so were the staff

Don't expect any popcorn if you go to the cinema, there wasn't any when we visited.

Leo was the best waiter on the ship, he worked in the lido breakfast and lunch and then evening in the meridan, he was the only member of staff to give us consistent service

Cruise Positives:
Food was excellent in the lido and meridan Captains gala night meal was enjoyable, best service we received but we were next to the captains table

Cruise Negatives:
Took up to 15 mins if you ordered from a drink from a waiter due to the system they are using for drink ordering. you have to give them your boarding card when you order, they then proceed to take orders from lots of other tables before going to collect t
