NOT A PARTY SHIP
Destination: Western Caribbean
The restaurant was very well managed, with friendly, helpful staff. Our waiter always remembered what drink we preferred and how we liked it. Whilst busy in the evening, our meals were served promptly, drinks topped up as necessary. The themed lunches too were delightful, the Hotel Manager and all his staff deserved the More high praise given by most passengers on the last evening.
What made our holiday so enjoyable was that in the evenings we could sit at the bar, listen to music quietly playing in the background and actual talk and be able to listen to the conversation of fellow passengers. There was entertainment laid on most evenings, steel-bands, talent competition etc, but it never got to the point where you could not hear your fellow passenger, a lot of people where merry but certainly not a nuisance, oh to have a local pub with the same atmosphere! Not a party ship, but for us a very HAPPY SHIP The only suggestion I would like to make to on-board activities, is that all the crew on-deck, those handling the sails, mending sails, climbing the masts, steering the ship into dock could be thanked during one of the evenings. They carry out their day to day activities, with passengers walking around taking photographs, asking question, in such a good natured way, I would have liked to see them being publicly thanked like the staff in the dining room etc. On a ship such as Royal Clipper and her sister ships in their clean, tidy uniforms they add to the beauty of sailing on such a cruise.

Cabin review: 02
Quiet cabin, sufficient space for two, plenty of wardrobe space, suitcases could be stored in allocated space under the bed. Bathroom again well designed, could store bits and bobs behind mirror, fresh towels on-demand. TV in cabin just in case we wanted to catch up with world news.
