Sail Date: Sep 2015
Cabin: Balcony Suite

Having travelled on over 40 different cruise ships since the 1980s and having been on two cruises this year already and not having tried Fred Olsen thought we would give it ago.

First impressions were that the ship was very well maintained ,the crew were delightful and we liked the size of the deck 7 suite we had booked but were amazed that instead of a range of toiletries we were supposed to use shampoo etc from bottles screwed to the wall , very 2 star standard.

However we did find that the food throughout was excellent and compared favourably with 5 star ships we regularly travel with
