After the lifeboat drill everybody made their way to the pool deck 11 ready for the sail away party!! The pool area is amazing and is split into a few sections. The forward section of deck 11 has the solarium indoor area and then through the sliding doors you go through to the open deck pool area where there is a pool bar and a big movie screen as well as hot tubs (some hotter than others) and through to the other side going towards the aft of deck 11 is the H2O kids zone complete with self service ice cream station which was a favourite with my 6yr old.

One thing to mention is due to the slippery pool area and most people wearing flip flops there were a lot of accidents with people slipping across the deck. I myself had a fall coming from the toilets to the pool area but mainly it was my pride that hurt as I flew across the deck!. There is always visible lifeguards on hand constantly watching everyone and they don’t sit down they literally stand at the pool all day with the a red buoy in hand. I found this very reassuring as my 6 year old seems to have no fear when it comes to the water. As we sailed out of Barcelona port the atmosphere was amazing the sun was shining, champagne flowing and a DJ appeared from a hole near to the movie screen. As the sail away party got under way the DreamWorks characters appeared to all the children’s delights and they danced away to the music with the reps! This was the best sail away i have ever experienced all geared towards families as this was within half term break there were many families on board.


Please stay tuned for my next blog as we sail to Italy & France.

Hello cruise enthusiasts!! My name is Becky, hello and welcome to my blog ‘Sail with Saddoo’. I have worked within travel for over 11 Years and I now have solely focused on cruise holidays for 9 of those years! Im completely crazy about cruising. I Cruise regularly on my own family holidays and am a fountain of knowledge when it comes to the particulars such as kids clubs and family facilities. I also occasionally get to cruise without the family and enjoy this just as much. Cruising is a minefield and there is so much to a cruise holiday, nevermind the variety of ships and their destinations but also things like entertainment and dining make it difficult to choose what is best for you and your requirements. This is where I can help the most as the key is suiting the ship and destination to the right holidaymaker to ensure the best possible cruise experience! I hope you enjoy reading my blogs and feel free to contact me directly I would love to hear from more like minded people who are crazy about cruising 
