We cruised on Lord of the Glens as part of a National Geographic Expedition, and we would travel again in a heartbeat on this wonderful ship.
The ship is stylish and elegant, without being stuffy. Polished brass and wooden fixtures recreate the by-gone days of cruising. There is ample public space for everyone to have a comfy spot (and, since the weather on many days was a bit damp, those spaces were well-used.) When the sun was out (and even when it wasn't), many passengers enjoyed time viewing the scenery from the teak decks.
Our cabin was on the Alexander Graham Bell deck and, contrary to what I was expecting based on other reviews, the cabin was spacious, the bathroom was more than adequate, and we had absolutely no problem storing our luggage either in the closet or under the bed.
The breakfast options were ample and satisfying. In addition to the buffet, guests had the option to order off the menu. Passengers sign up for their lunches and dinners in the morning. There were always several interesting dishes, thus making it often hard to choose. You had all day to anticipate a good meal, and that the service at mealtime was prompt and efficient.
Bar service was terrific and you were encouraged to order your dinner drinks/wine ahead of time. Again, that made for very prompt service.
The entire hotel staff, under Brian's capable and gregarious direction, were courteous and very friendly. The ship's company and crew were professional, and the captain was often about, mingling with the guests. It was a real pleasure watching him exercise his ship-driving skills through those narrow canals.
We loved every moment aboard Lord of the Glens.
