Ship Facts: Discovery Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Around the Bristish Isles

Check in was very efficient and our luggage was waiting for us outside the cabin on the Pacific Deck (Deck5). The cabin was spacious with a double bed dressing table and wardrobe two large windows. The bathroom had a shower which worked very well and was spotless with a supply of soaps and toiletries.

The ships Public Areas were in very good condition with lots of nice seating areas,however on deck the ships age become more apparent.The ship has two very small pools but on our trip only one was in use in the Lido where the buffet is situated perhaps not an ideal location. The Buffet was generally fine we used it for breakfast and snacks using the Severn Continents for evening dinner.

The food was most days of a reasonable standard with several choices for each course. The restaurant is on deck 3 and the portholes are permanently covered with curtains. The noise levels in the restaurant are very high and the tables are very close together.

The entertainment was most nights very good with a visiting comedian doing two shows during the cruise.

We have cruised with some of the larger cruise lines and found the price of drinks much cheaper on the Discovery. However the cost of excursions was not and we only did one ship excursion on the Isle of Scily. Franky the other trip price were exorbitant.

One major grip is that tea and coffee were only available free up to 10:00pm.

That said we enjoyed the cruise and found the crew very friendly and helpful.
