Sail Date: Oct 2015

Our first cruise (previously done a mini cruise to Egypt) and have to say what a wonderful time we had. Our itinerary was slightly different as we flew to Dubrovnik and home from Malaga but covered every port we wished to visit.

Its hard to know where to begin; we arrived in the beautiful port of Dubrovnik to be met by a taxi provided by Thomson as my husband is disabled and this allowed the transfer to the ship a little smoother. On arrival we awaited our cabin in what appeared to be a long queue but such a lovely atmosphere the time went quickly. Our cabin was located on the 3rd deck but whilst lower not at all claustrophobic as we imagined and could not have asked for better assistance from our Cabin steward.

The staff certainly make the cruise more memorable, in each and every eatery they go our of their way to ensure you are happy with all aspects of the service; even valet parking with my hubby wheelchair which was very amusing but so, so helpful.

Cabin Review

Cabin Standard

Excellent; far better than we imagined. We would however book an outside cabin next time just to see us arrive at each port each morning.
