Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Interior

We enjoyed the ports of call except for missing Le Havre on the 12 day British Isles portion of the cruise. But the ship needs some serious work done on it. The air conditioning didn't seem to work all through the night --we would wake up sweating. The shower water temperature was never regulated. It would go from Hot to cold & back again after just a couple days into the cruise. I reported numerous times but it still was not resolved by the time we got off the ship & no one ever got back to us. the drawers would open of their own accord when the seas were rougher & that never got resolved either. Our cabin steward tried to tell me they were designed that way. Steamers was a total disappointment--miss the Crab shack. The food was not very good in Steamers---I will never try it again it was so bad. 4 of us went & all of us agreed not worth the extra $$ charged for it. The food was pretty good in the regular dining room. The fish was nicely cooked but the duck was so overcooked. The shows were enjoyable for the most part--some great entertainment. We love Bravo --saw both shows --Love the Sopranos.

Cabin Review

Cabin IC C241

Problems with the shower water temperatures and drawers opening in rough seas.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)

Enjoyed Castle Cornet & walking around -found a cute restaurant for a great croissant & scones.

Cobh (Cork)

We walked around on our own for the most part. We went to Titanic Experience & did the Titanic Walking tour. Had a couple drinks before getting back on the ship!


We went around Dublin on our own using Dublin Pass.


We took a private tour that did Games of Thrones sites---it was amazing & fun.

Greenock (Glasgow)

Did a private tour of the area and had a great tour guide. Loved it & the bonny bonny banks of Loch Lomond.


Since we didn't get to go.....it was terrible.
