1) Embarkation. Quick and easy check in at Tilbury. We were in our cabin less than an our after arriving at the long stay.
2) Ship. Small compared to what we've cruised on before but made for a nice atmosphere. It's old and it shows in places, but go with an open mind and don't have RCCL or Celebrity expectations and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
3) Public areas. Captains Club Bar, Scotts Bar, and Columbus Bar. There is a small theatre, library and games rooms. Reasonable gym and spa. There is a bar and café at the back of the ship either side of a small pool.
