All in all an excellent first ever cruise for us. That is apart from an irresponsible passenger who decided to abandon the Barcelona tour and make his own way back to the ship without telling anyone. He caused a 40 minute delay whilst a search for him was conducted which in turn caused the abandonment of the highlight stop on the tour. Not Fred's fault I know, but very very annoying. Boarding at Dover was a breeze, we were aboard before we knew it. Our suite, 5015 on the Main Deck was very comfortable and well serviced as was the rest of the ship. No sign of the dreaded Noravirus. There were sanitisers everywhere. All the passengers appeared to use them as a matter of course which was good to see. The food was excellent. Somehow I managed to maintain my weight. Goodness knows how. Disembarkation was pretty quick although there was a slight delay due to fork lift activity around the dock. We enjoyed the experience so much we re-booked on board for the Amalfi Coast Cruise aboard Boudicca in April 2017 Read Less

We enjoyed the cruise - especially the sail-in to Venice - which was the highlight with the stunning views from our balcony. We've cruised many times with Fred, Olsen but were disappointed that this time - The savings that all lines are having to make are beginning to show on this Cruise, initially the lack of toiletry bag in the cabin was an indicator of savings yet it was just the start of more to come. The food is now acceptable, rarely excellent and only occasionally good. - There was no 'Orchestra' on the Cruise - a big saving - we understand they will be back!!!! - We had a car written off whilst in the care of Port of Dover, one of MANY to be written off, and many more badly damaged. We will never park at Port of Dover again and would advise all our friends that your car is at risk of weather damage when parked there too. Remember YOU pay the Insurance excess and lose YOUR No-Claims, YOU have to source and pay the extra for a replacement car when your car is written off.....when in the care of Dover Port. The positives - The Show Team, - The waiters and cabin staff, - The 'hidden' staff All of them were were, as always, exceptional Dover - when we arrived late to survey the scene of many cars severely damaged we couldn't get off the ship for ages. Dover seemed unable to connect the Ship to land - the air-bridge didn't work - electrical failures we were told. We finally 'escaped' along a jury-rigged gangplank from Deck 2. A fellow Cruiser remarked that we'd been to some of the poorest European Countries on our Cruise and at none of them was the facility as poor as at Dover. We agree.   Read Less
