Sail Date: Sep 2014
Cabin: Outside Cabin

We are regular cruisers with Mr. Olsen and the itinerary involving France, Guernsey and one Spanish port going down the Bay of Biscay really seemed to us a good choice by the cruise planners.

We drove to Rosyth - 160 miles - and arrived at the time stated in our instructions to find that we could have arrived earlier and been allowed on board. A little niggle as we like being on the boat with time to spare before the drill. And the signage around the terminal was not up to scratch! But we managed it finally as did the others!

Embarkation was more or less painless as they were well organised in the small terminal and we were soon aboard and found our luggage already in the cabin! The cabin was as we expected, having used this grade before and was clean and provided enough space for our 2 cases and our clothes in the drawers and hanging space.

Cabin Review

Outside Cabin

Cabin D

Well situated close to the lifts and stairs. There is very little noise or vibration from the ship. The only drawback for us was the A/c which seemed to stop cooling late at night and we need a cool cabin for good sleep. The beds are comfortable
