First, just to be accurate, the site doesn't allow selection of our cruise, which was Portugal, Spain and Morocco, and it doesn't allow selection of our embarkation port, Avonmouth. Please also note that I couldn't select two of our ports ... Read more

With relief we found Discovery waiting for us at Bristol Avonmouth (last time we turned up she was at Weymouth - another story entirely!) We were off to the Azores and Madeira via Spain and Portugal. It's a long way and we had to cross ... Read more

This voyage was an utter shambles. Due to it being windy, the ship didn’t leave Bristol docks for 28 hours; consequently we were late arriving at several of the scheduled places to visit and two of the ports ( Oban and Stornoway) we ... Read more

I am writing in defence of the Discovery. Yes, she is old and a bit tired, no balconies, no flash crystal chandeliers, a leaky roof etc. But we had a fantastic itinerary in the Black Sea. The excursions were excellent and tour guides (with ... Read more

We have sailed on the Discovery many times and have loved it mainly because it goes to different destinations. We sailed from Istanbul on the Treasures of the Black Sea. At the airport we heard a number of conversations about the Discovery ... Read more

The 'base line' for our cruise around the British Isles was somewhat different to the final amount we paid. However, it fell within our budget and we booked accordingly. Had we not cruised before we might have thought that this trip on ... Read more
