"FANTASTIC ONLY WISH WE HAD DONE IT A LOT SOONER"

"We went on this taster cruise with my cousin and her partner who have cruised before. From stepping out of the car at the terminal (used the P&O parking) and getting on-board, everything went smooth. We went to our cabins first and when I opened the door a HUGE vase of flowers were waiting for me (a 50th birthday gift that had been booked). The room had everything we needed with a massive bed. We booked a balcony room as I was a bit nervous but I even managed to sit out on it by day 2. We chose Freedom Dining which was perfect for us. We chose not to do the buffet (apart from one day when we didn't like menu choice). The waiters were very attentive and couldn't do enough for us! Our room attendant was also very polite and helpful. We did have issues with our photos on formal night but that would only really be the bad point (only 1 photo to choose from that wasn't any good). I found all on board to be polite and courteous. We couldn't go to Guernsey which was disappointing but better to be safe. We had a tour in Belgium which was very good. I am now booking our second cruise..to the Caribbean! I think I now have the cruising bug! (when taking a taster cruise, bear in mind that some are there for a booze cruise, get past that and imagine what it would be like without them..on a longer one). We loved it!"
