Ship - having read many of the previous reviews we were worried about the holiday - what had we let ourselves in for?!

Our first impressions of the ship were very good. She is just over 50 years old but beautifully maintained and in excellent order. Cabins were beautifully maintained & spotlessly clean at all times. We chose a standard plus outside on deck 6 amidships. Cabin 308 - a good choice - a short hop along from the main dining room. I would not recommend cabins on same level or near Scotts Bar as all passengers had to pass along their corridor after late night entertainment or crew parties!! There are no balcony cabins on board and the bed configuration suited us well offering plenty of room. Bathrooms adequate - shower good though tiny. Shown to our cabin after easy embarkation at Edinburgh - we were just told to join small queue after walking over car park with cases - many others seemed to be waiting in small waiting room for timed embarkation. Cases all arrived in cabin in minutes of arrival.

Overall we enjoyed our cruise. Excellent dining companions & great itinerary - main reason for booking.

Cabin Review

Cabin Standard + Outside

L shaped bed configuration. Standard + - just as illustrated in brochure. Good beds = plenty of room. Cases fitted under beds for storage. Just as illustrated in brochure - 2 portholes.
