We had sailed on her sister ship several years ago, loving every moment, so decided that a short cruise on this lovely, yacht size vessel would be just perfect in a Mediterranean spring.
Embarkation was over before we knew it, with the smiling captain waiting at the top of the gangplank to welcome guests, and a trio of waiters proffering glasses of champagne.
Our charming Deck 2 cabin was ready, with a chilled bottle nestling in an ice bucket and a huge basket of fruit temptingly beside it. The cabin had two delightfully retro portholes, lovely wooden trims round the separate bed and sitting area and a huge cabinet housing tv, DVD player and cocktail cabinets, complete with beautiful crystal glasses. The wardrobe had adequate storage, plus two robes, and there were ample drawers for more storage. The tiny bathroom had a marble shower unit with multi jet taps , Bulgari toiletries in generous sizes and ample fluffy towels. The friendly cabin stewardess checked to see that everything was to our liking, and brought the down pillows we prefer.
