Sorry to start with negatives but there were a few positives too. Firstly the ship is very dated and shabby, no nice soaps etc, our bathroom was tiny and your knees nearly touched the door when you were on the toilet. Our loo smelt ... Read more

I must admit I thought cruises were for the "older" person so was a little apprehensive about being in the minority. I needn't have worried as the age range was incredible, it really is a holiday for anyone from 0 to 100 years ... Read more

All of human life was there... British human life anyway. From snobs who liked to pretend they were slumming it and introduced themselves by asking what you do for a living and where do you live, to ordinary hard-working families taking a ... Read more

First cruise, absolutely loved it. Yes, we had no benchmark but given some of the nitpicking on some of these reviews we found hardly anything to complain about. The ship looks immaculate, regularly cleaned inside and out and by God ... Read more

The ship is a bit tired in places, but was very clean. The cabins were kept exceptionally clean, cleaned twice daily, and were quite comfortable and had ensuite showers and a bath. They were a bit tired though, and 9017 did not have a ... Read more

The Eastern Encounters Cruise was attractive due to the interesting itinerary, Turkey, Beirut, Cyprus, Israel. Transfers from airport to ship relatively straight forward after hunting down the coach driver at Dalaman airport. ... Read more
