Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2016
Cabin: Balcony

Embarkation was excellent. We were soon aboard and no huge queue for security. Cabin was as expected. Steward, Conrado, was excellent and kept it spotless. Requests were soon carried out.

Muster drill was dragged out and exhausting for those who had had long journeys and couldn't find a seat.

Weather was mixed and seas a bit choppy round the islands.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin B1

Usual sized cabin and balcony. It would have been nice yo have 2 easy chairs but not enough room.

Port Reviews

Southampton

No opinion as only came to ship

Tenerife

Sunday and not much open. Pleasant to walk round in the sunshine. Previously we have taken a tram to La Laguna which is nice. Loro Park is worth a visit if you have children.

Lanzarote

Shuttle bus then a long walk along the front to the town. Mostly closed as bank holiday. It was pleasant in the sun but not a walk for the less able.

Madeira (Funchal)

We did a tour on our own in a Tukxi. It was brilliant. We went round small narrow streets where larger vehicles couldn't go S C saw lots of the city. I would certainly recommend it. There are a variety of tours you can choose from.
