Sail Date: Oct 2015

Boarded the ship in Palma on the 13th October, for what was its penultimate cruise.

The ship left port at 23.00 and it was apparent it was a bit rough, leading to the first day at sea, being a nightmare, Both myself and partner had to get seasick pills, for the first time I have to say, normally ok in rough weather.

After our first stop the weather calmed and the rest of the cruise was just as good as the first one.

Clean and comfortable more than adequate for our needs

Port Reviews


We docked in Olbia, and we left the ship and had a wander round the town, went a small market, then we took an open top bus tour, a great way to get round and a great way to see the local scenery


We decided not to take a tour but instead just visit Naples itself. Well what a mistake that was, we walked into the city to see if the brochuers were accurate. Well have to say you take your life in your hands out there, while trying to cross the road, and at a proper crossing, with the green man showing so you can cross, the first car stops you start to cross, another car ignores the lights and just misses you, the car that stopped sees this and he takes off now leaving in the middle of the road with these maniacs aiming for you, God it was scarey, after that happening twice we just went back to the ship and relaxed there

Corsica (Ajaccio)

We arrived in Calvi (not Ajaccio) and were tendered to shore to the town, and very pretty it was, stayed for some hours before returning to the ship, another fine day

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Having to put this in here, because there is no other choice. Before we got to Palma we called into Mahon, Menorca, and had a wonderful day there, got right round Mahon on the little train, a fantastic way to see the city. Fantastic day before returning to the ship to return to Palma
