  3. Saga Pearl II
We chose this cruise because it sailed round the u.k. without stopping which suited our purpose because my wife has severe walking problems. The embarkation was superbly handled, the cabin was large, comfortable and clean, the food on board was superb and the staff and crew could not have been more helpful. Unfortunately, our cabin was on the wrong side of the vessel for sightseeing so had to go on deck for all viewing which, due to the somewhat misty weather at some ports was not the greatest for viewing. This, of course, was nothing to Saga's detriment. We had early morning tea delivered to the cabin, and were invited to the captain's table on the second night. The only drawback was disembarkation at Dover which resulted in us having to wait 3-1/2 hours before a chair could be found for my wife, this was all ordered at the time of booking but, unlike embarkation when people arrived in dribs and drabs, everyone was disembarking at the same time in Dover. Having said this we are booking another cruise next year and have asked for the same cabin. must say one final word which is about a crew member named Jemma who could not have been more helpful and was always cheerful and ready to assist when required.

Cabin Review

Two-Bed Superior Outside
Cabin I 243
This cabin was so large that we had a telephone at each end so as not to have to run to answer at any time. The beds were comfortable with duvets and were turned down each evening with chocolates on the pillows. The bathroom had a shower over the bath but was easy enough for my wife to get into. A large screen t.v. with a dvd player, large settee, two chairs, fridge, fairly large safe and plenty of drawer and cupboard space. All in all what was not to like.
