Just returned from a fantastic trip around the British Isles on the Azores, yes shes an old ship but don't be put off. First time cruising and were pleasantly surprised by this ship ( don't take any notice of any negative comments on previous reviews) Embarkation at Liverpool was well organised, taxi dropped us off, porters there to take luggage straight away, checking in 10 mins then straight onto ship, met off gangway and shown to cabin, although small ( cabin 317 ) it was well thought out and bathroom much bigger than expected, shower always hot water and plenty of pressure. Went for drink at the outside bar, went back to cabin and luggage there already, very impressed. Meals on board were great we ate both at the buffet and the waiter service restaurant, serving staff excellent, always plenty of choice, only small niggle was felt bit rushed in the restaurant. One night paid supplement for the steak house ( well worth the £15 extra ) best steak I've had cooked to perfection. We did wonder if tender off the ship at certain ports of call would be a problem as we hadn't booked their trips, as they get priority, but not a problem at all, never felt we were waiting long ( Heard on bigger ships this can be a nightmare) Drinks package £17 each per day well worth it for us Overall if you like the idea of a small ship with traditional cruise feel, this is the one for you Read Less
