Great way to spend Christmas and New Year.
We went on a couple of trips, one to Rome, which the young lady photographer came with us as we went off on our own to see the sites. The other was to Pisa and the receptionist More Sarah was also tour guide. She was so helpful and kind to one of the passengers who was having trouble keeping up as he couldn't walk very fast she walked with him and didn't once try to hurry him up.
We loved the food such a choice. The waiters were very quick with your food. We were never waiting long between courses in the Dining Room at night. During the day we used the Verandah for breakfast and lunch. I think we both gained weight. You couldn't fault the food. The entertainment was very good. John the compere was very funny. The only bad thing was a comic that did one night only, thank god for that as he was so bad. They replaced him with better entertainment. The crew show was one of the best.
We had two extra nights in Lisbon as the Captain had heard that the weather was going to be really bad so we stayed the extra nights till the storm had passed. One old passenger said she was going to complain about the extra days but I pointed out to her that there would be a lot of people suffering sea sickness or worse fall over and break limbs. She said, you are right but she was still going to complain.
Well we had a really good time and would recommend this lovely little cruise ship to anyone. Less
The cabin was very nice plenty of room for the clothes and things we brought with us. Beds very comfortable. Cabin very clean and kept that way by Willy our steward. The bathroom was spotless. Toilet rolls and towels changed every day. Shampoo, shower gel, hand cream and body lotion all supplied.
