Additional details

Sail Date: Jul 2017

This was a Bare Necessities cruise, and I can't think of a better way to spend a couple of weeks in July then cruising the Mediterranean on a beautiful ship with friendly crew and NO DRESS CODE!

Only (minor )short comings were:

1) Food was good, but not excellent. Maybe I've become jaded, having recently come off a Crystal World Cruise, but I thought the food was a little better two years ago when we were on the Royal Clipper.

Cabin Review

Cabin 3

Cabins are very small, but nicely appointed. This is a sailing ship, so space is at a premium. Everything worked, the steward was friendly and efficient. We like our cabin as far forward as possible, so we get rocked to sleep. The bow of any ship has a lot more movement than midship or stern. This would not be a good cabin to someone prone to sea-sickness.

Port Reviews

Madeira (Funchal)

Rented a car from AutoRentACar.com, and highly recommend them. Prompt pick-up and delivery to the port, new car, friendly people, reasonable rates.
