Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin:

We embarked at Tilbury & I have got to say that the embarkation was not too bad & the cases arrived in a timely manner. We ate our Dinner in the Waldorf Restaurant which I could not fault the service was food & no complaints about the food. Our Cabin which which was described as an Inside superior was roomy but the noise from the engine was too much in our view. The noise kicked in when it was docking which was quite early on a number of occasions & there is no way you could sleep. The entertainment of an evening was slightly dated except the last show which was good. The ports of call were good except that it was called a Christmas Market Tour but there was NO Christmas Market in Amsterdam at all. A little moan, you were kicked out of your Cabin at 7.30am but we did not Dock until after 8am & were not allowed off the ship until about 9am. Which left a number of ladies trying to find a Toilet that was free (and not blocked) between those times. Overall not a bad cruise, the people you meet always make up for the bad bits!!!
