Into the Wilds of Scotland
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
The rest of the ship is equally very nice, and cosy, well decorated. On the top deck are 2 lounges ,with comfy seating....can you guess what secret the large curved seat in the front holds, most things have more than one use.
The dining rooms holds everyone at one seating. you can sit where you like but for lunch and dinner everyone has all of their courses served at the same time. 1st course-that is cleared away, then 2nd course etc. the evening meal usually took up to 2hrs for this reason. All the food is fresh and was really really lovely....very well done.
The cruise was down the Caledonian Canal and around some of the inner Hebrides at the end. Due to the weather (windy and wet) when we were in the open seas, Brian had to do a lot of thinking on his feet. We went everywhere we were supposed to, but maybe not in the order we should have done. I think if you consider doing one of these cruises ,and they involve the open sea you have to be prepared for a lot of changes...On one island we were about to disembark ,when it was decided we would not be staying there due to an approaching storm, and it appears running out of food-could not have that could we? We set of for more sheltered berthing, and somewhere where more fresh food could be purchased.
I feel a word should also be put in here for the barman Gordon-by the 2nd night he knew what we drank and our cabin number. He was always very friendly, and it was not his fault that the two times the contents of the bar took a tumble in rough seas ,he was not around!!!!
Would we go on here again.Yes we would-we saw some lovely lovely places that we would not otherwise have had the chance of seeing. The whole thing was most enjoyable. If anything lets things down I would say it is the bathrooms,but how can they alter them. If they cut down on the cabins, less people, so more expensive cruises...
Ages on our cruise I would say low 50's upwards, with most at the higher end. You do need to be able to use stairs on this boat as they are quite steep.
Go and learn some wonderful things and see some wonderful parts of Scotland Less
Cabin review: 302
tiny cabin,but very quiet
Did what it said on the tin.

A little lacklustre
