Normally I write only detailled german reviews for german cruiseboards. But than I saw this review from StanleyVa and I thought I have to write down, what our experiences were on this small and intimate cruise ship. Because he gave the cruise only 3 stars and the cruise definitely deserves 5 stars.
We are experienced cruisers, with more than 35 cruise on different cruise line. We are used to all sizes of ships, from the smalles one (Journey) to the biggest one (Allure ots). Our preferred size is like the Radiance class with about 80.000 tons and around 2000 passengers. But depending on the itinerary we choose for other sizes. Like a TA we love the big ships. And the Journey was perfect for this cruise around the British Isles. Please excuse some mistakes in this reviews, but english is not my motherlanguage.
We started perfectly in Copenhagen with a very fast and smooth check in. We had an outside cabin on deck 4. Okay its small, especially the bathroom, but it has enough space for all the clothes and to stay in the room for a nap, to change clothes or for night time. But we knew that from another Journey cruise and you can check it before you book on the website of a cruiseline, how big or small the cabins are.
The cabin was small but big enough for taking a nap or to sleep in the night or changing clothes during the day. There were enough space in the closets for all our clothes. The bathroom is small, but for a 12 day cruise enough space.Everybody can see the cabinsize before he books a cruise on the cruiselines website. So everybody can know how big or small a cabin is.
