Full Review:

this was our first cruise so didnt know what to expect was very well organised nice to get rid of our luggage once on coach down to harwich and finding it outside our cabin. cabin was compact but served us very well. the cabin service was exceptional throughout our trip.we had chosen our cabin in advance so it would be easy to find, we didnt spend much time in there as there was always something going on. wasnt sure what to take clothes wise as we thought it might all be a bit formal, neednt have worried as stuck to smart casual in the evenings. having paid all inclusive we found this was really good value, and have developed a liking for taqela sunrise. there was a choice of dining areas to choose from we tried all of them but found ourselves dining in the lido restaurant mostly which was self service, there was a generous selection on the menus but tried not to pig out as you could pretty well eat when ever you liked. the entertainment was excellent those guys really work hard, new shows every night. entertainment included quizzes,a first rate comedian, game shows, the few shops on board were a little expensive as were the excursions.if we were to cruise again we would fly to a warm destination and join the ship there, rather than spend several days in cooler weather. was disapointed to miss the two stops in portugal due to a general strike there, but called in to some nice places, if you remember that the holiday is the ship and the excellent service you get, and i mean excellent you wont go far wrong, if your not sure go on give it a go see if its for you, there were plenty of folk who cruised on a regular basis who loved being served by people who gave the very best service.

Cruise Positives:
great value for money.

Cruise Negatives:
non really.
