This was a four night cruise, Southampton to Southampton, calling at Guernsey and Bruges.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the ship was fantastic as was the entertainment team, the dining and cabin staff. There was a friendly, fun atmosphere throughout the ship.
The food was good in both the restaurant and the buffet with more than enough choices. The entertainment was good with two full theatre productions. The sail away parties were the best at sea!
The highlight of the cruise was Russell Watson's performance. Tickets were allocated and delivered to our cabins to ensure every passenger had a chance to see him. As soon as he walked on stage the atmosphere was electric, his personality, friendliness and true professionalism just shone through.
Guernsey. We walked from the ship to a bus stop (about 10 minutes) and caught the local bus which took us a one and a half hour trip around the island. The driver gave a commentary. It cost £2. Well worth it. Local buses also ran to the War museum, War hospital etc. there really is no need to do an organised ships tour.
Bruges. We took the free shuttle from the ship to the railway station, caught the train into the centre of Bruges. It cost us about £5 for a return ticket. It was comfortable, easy and quick and trains were every half an hour.
