Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin:

We flew from Manchester to Naples and were expecting the worst after reading the reviews however, thinking back I personally think the reviews were harsh. The walk is about 5 minutes away and if you have any issues, staff were on hand to assist.

We embarked smoothly and were able to go to our cabins immediately so could freshen up before exploring. We knew the ship was an older ship but it’s been refurbished very well and every where was spotless with hand sanitizers placed strategically.

We had a 2 week cruise and I definitely didn’t want to leave and would have loved to continue with the ship to Croatia for another week!

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony

Although smaller than on some ships, everything is well appointed with plenty of storage space, large bed which could be separated if necessary and comfortable. There were a number of sockets and even a hidden couple in the electric cupboard!
