Had to cancel our World cruise in August due to unexpected ill health. End of November all was ok but not able to rebook as no vacancies. Found this cruise and they had unsold cabins, decided to try them. Balcony cabins available but they allow smoking on them which we did not like. There was available a terrace cabin so after talking directly with Head Office were reassured it was one of their new cabins. So booked in December. Embarkation went fine. and we were shown to our cabin. Not what we were used to, but very basic. Still we made the best of it. Went to main dining room first night glad we were in the small side room as restaurant very noise. Nice people but told them we liked to eat in buffet more flexible. Joined them on formal nights. Liked Buffet very much small and quiet. Food very good and very varied. Staff very friendly. Ship is old and maintenance went on daily. sometimes very annoying. On the whole enjoyed the cruise but only because of the friendly people on board. The organisation was dreadful. Ran out of things, New digital TVs which did not work till nearly home. Silly things but very annoying. never had this on any other cruise line. Read Less
