Culture at sea

Sail Date: September 2011
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Southampton

Beautiful ship, very friendly staff from booking in at Southampton,to the maintainance men who always said hello. Breakfast and lunch,as good as other cruise lines. the evening meal was tasty, but the presentation was not very good,it did improve as the days passed.

The entertainment was excellent, I particularly liked the Opera evenings, but there was something for everyone.

The tours were not particularly good and were expensive, as were drinks on board. A tin of cola cost E 3.15 and there was a service charge on every drink of 15% However, I did enjoy the cruise ,and it will not stop me cruising with them again

We called at one of the islands of the Azores. Another lovely place. Very clean.I did not particularly enjoy the tour we did to two lakes. It was expensive for a short bus ride. Less

Port and Shore Excursions


Bermuda was a great experience. We snorkeled in very shallow water,ate supper at a lovely restaurant at the quay side,sailed on a ferry to the capital, Hamilton, and looked around the fort,built by the English.The history is an eye opener.

A very clean city,with a fair amount to see. I enjoyed this port

The area around the docks is not picturesque, but a brisk walk soon gets you on 5th Avenue,and the world is your oyster.

Not a particularly pretty place.Very hilly,so need to be fit
