Our second cruise on this ship since November 2016, this time with elderly and wheelchair using relatives.
Initial embarkation and final disembarkation could not have been easier or smoother. Absolutely brilliant checkin, checkout and security staff at Southampton.
The ship overall had a completely different feel to it compared to the November trip on a similar sort of route - not surprisingly. The holiday camp feel of the summer holiday crowd was all pervasive and the entertainment, whilst complete torture to me, was clearly enjoyed by many.
We had 2 cabins for 4 of us - an accessible, balcony cabin - excellent, spacious and well designed for the wheelchair user. Ours was a nearby inside cabin - enough space given it was the cheapest type of accommodation and it served its purpose.
Shuttle transfers for wheelchair separated the group. So we walked back to the ship.
Friendly welcome on land. Excursion cancelled due to weather.
No accessible shuttle available so we got to the port gates and walked around the local area / beach.
