Ship Facts: Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Sleep deprived
Left Leith on a sunny evening 23rd July.

By the time we got to North Berwick it began to be very choppy. Next 24 hours were terrible - this old ship could not cope with the Gale Force wind over the North Sea. A huge percentage of the ship were confined to their cabin due to the weather - the lifts were off . Does this ship have stabilisers. Due to the time lost because of the storm we were at sea from Saturday to Wednesday before we docked.

Our Cabin 3051 must be the worst on the ship. Between the vibration, noise of the engines and the boom boom of the engines it was impossible to get any sleep on this cruise. After two nights of no sleep I asked to be moved. Was told by the receptionist there were no cabins available. This said the people in the cabin next to us and the cabin across from us both got moved. One of these couples described our cabins as trying to sleep in a washing machine.

The cabins were certainly a little shabby - top covers were both darned. The cabin steward kept it clean.

The dining room lacked something - maybe some seasoning. Certainly not the quality of food we are use to on cruises.

The entertainment was very good (if we could have stayed awake). The shows were very good though the comedian was dire.

This old old ship should be retired. Cruise & Maritime - NEVER AGAIN.
