"We regularly cruise with Fred and would normally give an excellent rating but not this time. The food was excellent as were the waiters and the staff, the cabin was to the usual comfortable standard but from there..."Read More

Some other general observations GOOD: Classic elegant salons Small ship - easy to get ...
