Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Belfast
We had a wonderful cruise to Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. The Ship is small by our standards, and the décor is a bit tired, but the staff and the food was wonderful. The entertainment was very good, probably the best of any of the nine cruises we have been on.

Pity about the Nova-virus that affected quite a number of guests and crew. ( we escaped thanks)

The Ship's crew never made any announcements. (all we had was Chinese whispers)

There was however some BAD points, First the ship was late! Embarkation was an embarrassment, sitting in a Big Tent for TWO hours, Coffee from the back of a truck, Porta-loos. Information from a lady standing on a chair shouting instructions.( no loud speaker)

Arrival back in Belfast to very heavy rain and being stuck in the large tent again, the same shouting lady and one senior police man and other people in yellow coats,not knowing what they were doing, directing passengers into lines More going nowhere. (organized confusion)

No transport was laid on, any other Port always has Buses, and/or Taxi-cabs. (some body missed a trick here). Less

Cabin review:

Could not put the beds together as this would leave very little room on each side.
