Cabin: Standard Inside

What on earth can possibly be written about this ship that hasn't already been written. The most obvious words and cliches that spring to mind about this boat are also probably the most true. Oppulent. Old fashioned. Over the top. All of these things are true and yet it is so much more.

I was worried about a few things. Would I be the only one under 80 on the ship? Would I go bankrupt buying a drink? Would we make it without crashing into an iceberg? Luckily the answer to these questions were no, no, yes.

The first impression of this ship is, well your not allowed to write a swear word in the reviews but it began with F, and that's just the size of it, that's before you even get on board. Once you've stepped through that doorway, your going back in time. Your making that journey that has been made for hundreds of years, the way it has always been made, and there is nothing like passing Lady Liberty to remind you of what you are doing.

Small but luxurious and the beds were like sleeping on cloud.
