We chose this cruise line because we had sailed with it the year before and had enjoyed it so much.
We like the smaller size ship with fewer passengers thereby giving it a more intimate feel. Also gratuities and complimentary drinks are included so your know where you are so to speak when you commence the cruise. However, the standard of the complimentary wine list for 2016 was not as good as last year. As an example of this, there were no Australian or New Zealand wines available on any day and many Californian ones.
The crew from the Captain downwards were marvellous and we could not fault them - welcoming, friendly and attentive.
We feel that this cruise line suits people who want a quieter time enjoying talking and mixing with each rather than attending big variety shows - they did have evening entertainment but not on a large scale.
The itinerary of this cruise is quite demanding as 4 of the 10 days involved very early starts and late evenings.
The food in all restaurants was good but the MDR could supply more vegetables with dishes rather than having to ask for them every time.
Inside cabin with good position. Very happy with it as it was quiet at end of corridor. The only suggestion and I would imagine it would apply to all cabins is to install a small washing line in shower room for small items of washing needed when not using the laundry. It had a very comfortable bed with a sofa in the room as well so for an inside cabin it was a good size and could not have had more.
