A pleasant surprise!
Destination: Baltic Sea
We had a wet day at sea and it was difficult to find somewhere to sit in the public lounges. We sometimes found it difficult to find a chair on the promenade deck in the shade, but there were plenty of loungers on the sun deck.
Unlike many ships there is not a theatre on board. Shows took place in the Neptune Lounge where the More seating is not ideal for a good view.
We did 3 shore excursions, and although expensive, they were well organised and interesting. Our only complaint on the Bordeaux wine tour to Graves and Sauternes was that we were not given a 'nibble' to go with the wine - not even a slice of French baguette!
Disembarkation was very organised and our car was waiting for us as we got off the ship. We really enjoyed the Fred Olsen experience and will certainly use them again. Less
Cabin review: B6091 Superior Twin Outside
Our choice of cabins was limited because of late booking and we knew that we would have a fully restricted view. It was very clean, if a bit dated. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet at night. The bathroom was small,but there was always lovely hot water. We had lots of hangers and enough space for our clothes. Our only complaint was that it only had one chair ( apart from the dressing table chair) to sit on. There was room for another chair,which would have made watching TV easier for both of us, and on our wet sea day we could have stayed in our cabin instead of trying to find somewhere to sit in the public rooms.Read All Superior Twin Outside (B) Reviews >>
