Cabin to avoid

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Tenerife

Our trip to Cape Verde, Gambia & Senegal...was not as warm and rougher seas than many on board had hoped for, still that's nature and it was a lot better than home!!

We had a sleepless experience in cabin 7006 which ruined our trip and a fellow passenger also experienced and was moved from 7020 with unacceptable noise, creaking and loo flushing.

Pick pocketed in Dakar as were others, do not go ashore on your own, Banjul was as intimidating, organised security escorts are essential if visiting town.

The ships shore tours were well organised and safe, general opinion was good, we really enjoyed our 'lazy day on the river' but rather rickety.

It was always a rush for limited seating in the entertainment lounges, but the entertainment was very good and good fun.

Dining in the restaurants, buffet and pool bar, was the highlight, with brilliant service and excellent food choices.

Finally the staff were friendly, cheerful as were our More fellow cruisers.

But, our experience will leave 'BRAEMAR' Fred Olsen at the bottom of our recommendations and choice for another cruise. Less
