Pleasantly pleased

Sail Date: August 2014
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Other

Having just returned from a 3 night trip to Antwerp and Amsterdam, I am pleased that I did not take too much notice of the moans. The ship is old but the rooms are bright light and clean. The service was fantastic and nothing too much trouble. There were a good mix of ages on board and as this was the pirate radio 50 year anniversary trip, most people had a common interest in music . Eddy Floyd the Star of the show did not let us down and it was really the boat that rocked that night.

The cabin we had 508, was clean spacious and comfortable with ample storage ( more than some of the larger ships we have been on) with mirrored wardrobe doors. They do lack any sound proofing and were noisy if, as we had, a hen party returned to their rooms in the early hours! The food was good and although not a huge choice. The only negative here was the coffee, revolting! Purchased coffee was fine though.

Antwerp is a lovely little town and we berthed just opposite the cathedral. More Amsterdam is noisy and very dirty, with rubbish everywhere including the canals. Such a shame.

All in all a lovely trip and we were blessed with good weather most of the time so felt like we were on holiday from the moment we got on board to the moment we left. Tilbury well organised and embarkation and disembarkation went without a hitch. Less
