forget the negative reviews, you'll find the ship clean, the food impeccable and the service courteous.

I was slightly nervous bearing in mind my previous experience on Black Watch and the reviews this year - but I loved everything about this cruise. So much so we've booked on the same ship for next year.

Whilst the 3 restaurants are fine - we were in Avon and the views were wonderful, we ate mostly though in the Palms cafe, initially because our table bookign time at 6.30pm was too early but consequently because we loved the relaxed pace and the choice of food was incredible (quality matching it!)

Cabin Review

Really superb cabin with views over the ship's wake, only downside was occasional soot from the funnel
