Ship Facts: Discovery Review (by Cruise Critic!)
My husband and I cruised the Baltics on the 20th August, it was a last minute booking but decided to give the Shearing cruise ago....and we were not disappointed the collection from the interchange to Harwich was very good, as was the location to our cabin on ship, everyone was very helpful and we CANNOT fault the service at all. The dining room staff, cabin staff, chef, bar staff, were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for any of them. There were lots of activities to do on board if you wanted to take part, there was a library for those who wanted to read or a cinema.

The excursions were a bit pricey, but they usually are on these sort of ships, we did our own site seeing most of the time but went on the trips to St.Petersburg, which were very good with excellent guides.

The entertainment was EXCELLENT with a wonderful comedian Bobby Beran, also Gaynor Connor an EXCELLENT singer, also ANDANTE a unique & unusual show of musical dexterity. The Discovery Theatre Company also were EXCELLENT and were of West End standard.
As for the Shearing staff they were brilliant always there to help but as always you always get the handful who are never satisfied with anything and love to complain.....You all did a great job....All in all we loved our time aboard the Discovery and will be sad when it is taken off. I might add it was a very friendly atmosphere and we got to know lots of nice people.

Community Manager's Note: 'This review was written when the ship sailed for Voyages of Discovery. As of February 2013, it is now sailing under the Cruises & Maritime banner"
