Really enjoyed the cruise could not fault anything and thoroughly recommend this holiday to everyone. Especially like the way you can sit wherever you like for dinner thus meeting and mixing with more people. The food was excellent with a great variety of choice. We personally like the more relaxed dining of the buffet lunch on the sun deck and was pleased there was no dress code. The free drinks with meals also worked very well. The itinerary worked very well with just the right amount of time in each location particularly liked the microphone system which made it very easy for everyone to hear the guide and the fact that the groups were altered for each excursion thus helping you to mix with more people. The option of having half the day free in many locations also worked very well especially with bus transport to and from towns every half an hour. Also liked the fact that bottled water supplied as you left the ship and also the fact that hot drinks and biscuits were available at all times. The evening briefings and daily news sheets ensured that you did not miss anything. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, indeed nothing was too much trouble. The evening entertainment was generally quite relaxed and fun and it was nice to have the opportunity to dance. One night of the cruise was a themed evening with food, drinks and entertainment of the Country we were travelling through which gave you the opportunity to sample everything.

Excellent Cruise
