A Very Pleasant Experience

Sail Date: April 2013
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Other

Azura Mini Cruise to Zeebrugge and Guernsey.Embarkation was slick and painless apart from the overzealous security,why an 80+ years old lady should have anything threatening in her flat shoes is beyond me.The ship was very clean and despite what a previous reviewer has stated our cabin was immaculately clean and very well equipped.

Freedom Dining in the Meridian was very enjoyable with good quality food well presented and hot,the staff though very busy were attentive and professional.
The "Seventeen" fine dining restaurant was worth every penny of the £58 surcharge and was an experience to treasure.Sindhu was a little disappointing in that the food though good was served by a bored,tired Waitress and was not worth the £40 surcharge.

72 for 2 people to take the coach to Brugge was bordering on usury,so we took the free shuttle bus to Blankenberg station and for the princely sum of 11Euros 80 return for 2 tickets we enjoyed the 15 minute journey to More Brugge and a had a very nice time exploring this very pretty but very busy town.

Guernsey was a bit of a disappointment as we arrived on a Sunday and it was shut!

Entertainment on board was varied and ranged from awful to brilliant with Charlotte and Jonathan being brilliant.

All in all a nice relaxing break on a well run very hard worked ship at a great price and we wholeheartedly recommend it. Less

Very pretty,very busy.Use shuttle bus and train for excellent value day out.

Guernsey on a Sunday is closed!!Enough said!
