Sail Date: May 2016

We chose the cruise because of having travelled before with Cruise and Maritime on the Astoria which we enjoyed. Also the itinerary appealed to us.

We opted for an inside cabin and was on deck 7. The cabin was spacious but it did have bunk beds so if there were four people in the cabin, it would have been cramped. Other comments have said the cabins were noisy on this ship but we did not have a problem and found the beds comfortable. Our cabin was kept clean and we never had to ask for anything.

Entertainment on this cruise was below our expectations mainly because we had to go to the show before dinner as we were on the 2nd sitting (8.15pm). On previous cruises, we have always had the show after dinner. We found ourselves at a loose end with nothing much to do. The entertainment is definitely geared for the First sitting passengers who had more choice.

Port Reviews


Was able to take the shuttle bus into the centre of Belfast. Visited the City Hall and did the free tour which was excellent. Also walked to the Botanical Gardens and Museum which is well worth a visit and was free.


Did the Guiness Factory but was disappointed as it was ver commercialised. Hop on and off bus was interesting and worth the money.


Beautiful town and easy to walk to from the port.


Enjoyed this town. Easy to walk around and is close to the cruise ship.
