Sail Date: Sep 2017
Cabin: Balcony

First cruise, to celebrate 40 years of marriage. Had never found the prospect of cruising attractive, but we decided to give it a go based on the experience of friends. Heaven!

The staff on board the ship were both plentiful and attentive. We had a choice of opting in or out of the many activities and entertainments on board. The ambience on board was one of refinement, and the choice of venues to dine, from quick snacks to formal dining, were plentiful and varied in terms of cuisine.

The public areas on board were exquisite with a strong Art Deco influence. We regularly frequented the Queen's Room which was, by day, the venue for e.g. dance lessons, fitness programme and by night Ballroom, Latin, or disco dancing and a variety of musical performances from harpist, pianist, classical guitarist and tribute rock band. Afternoon tea in the queen's Room was a bit of theatre in itself. The shows provide in the ship's theatre were varied and of a very high standard.

Cabin Review


Cabin BD

Very comfortable bed and unexpectedly roomy cabin. Everything we needed for a relaxed holiday. We were never aware of noise from other travellers or cabin staff. The balcony was ideal for a quiet read, or just simply watching the world go by.

Port Reviews


Corfu town was a short ride from the port area with plenty to see and do.


Spent our time in Cagliari sightseeing and lazing at sidewalk cafes.


With the reputation this city has as a not-so-pretty port, the warren of streets, markets and shops back from the port area were a joy to explore. This was the only place on the trip where we felt we had to be extra vigilant about our security.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

We have visited Rome on numerous occasions before and would suggest an excursion for those who haven't. Even better, select a cruise which starts or ends in Rome and stay for a few days. Fabulous city. We did however spend a few hours in the port town of Civitavecchia, a short stroll from the ship. Very pleasant.


The sail from the port of Venice was breathtaking. We joined the ship here direct from our flight, and watched our departure from the dinner table.
