And these are the places we visited on our two week voyage
From start to finish everything went smoothly, We booked in at Gatwick Airport, flew out exactly on time, the flight was with Thomas Cook to Heraklion.
Flight time approx 3hrs 45Mins.
The flight crew we had for this particular flight I have to say, were "Brilliant" it was nice to have a Captain who had a wicked sense of humour and was very cheerful with it, it made a good start to the Holiday.
"Thank you" Capt Min brown and your crew.
Once you arrive in Heraklion you collect your baggage then you put them on the coach, after that your suitcases are taken to your cabin.
You register your credit card for the duration of the trip at Heraklion and you are given a bar coded card for entry and exit of the ship.(Simple). Also your photo is taken to identify you are the holder of the card.
Below are some video clips taken during the cruise.
First night on board was the Greek night sail away party, a memorable night
Our trip on Ocean Village One
"What can I say!" Blue skies and hot weather the whole time, Temperatures varied from 28% - 40%.The ship itself is very capable of riding rougher weather, the night we sailed from Heraklion it was very windy and the sea fairly rough, however we hardly noticed it,until you opened a door!.
The journey through out the 14days was smooth and without incident,the ship is comfortable and well run, the staff work very hard and work very long hours.
You have a team member assigned to you,ours was "Sherilyn" who looked after us very well and the room was cleaned every day.(spotless).
I will go into food etc under the different categories along with excursions.
Again I cannot compare what this particular cruise is like compared to others as this was our first cruise,what I can say is from our personal experience it was just right for us,casual and relaxing, and we were treated very well and looked after.
