Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

Especially Bruges, Guernsey, Bordeaux, Ferrol and Lisbon were very nice. Bruges is fabulous. Had a good lunch ashore with a special local beer 'Straffe Hendrik': delicious! In Ferrol I discovered a very good white wine: a Dao Passarella. We made two local excursions in Portugal which can be recommended.

On board we had the best bridge TD couple in a long time: friendly and reallygood.

What a difference with HAL where they are too rude, too incompetent and too old most of the time. No constant hammering here like on HAL ships, no awfull smells. Just a relaxing holiday. On a HAL shop, about 5.00 pm I get a bit hungry. Here I look forward to a very good dinner. Especially in Red Ginger and Toscane, but also in the main dining room.

Verandah Stateroom

A bit small but nothing to complain. The best beds ever.
