We cannot criticise this little ship in any way. The organisation was wonderful from boarding to disembarking. We were a little concerned at some of the critical comments but soon dismissed them. The food was simply wonderful wherever we chose to eat. Breakfast on the rear deck was like stepping back in time. Lunch inside (or an the rear deck) could be ordered or self served. There were everyday choices such as fish, salads, etc at one end of the dining area with a huge and colourful dessert spread at the other end, In between was the daily specials such as Japanese, curries - a different choice every day. Pizzas were brought around too. The wait staff couldn't do enough for us. I couldn't wait for the next lecture as they were so informative and enjoyable - dry history made live. Our excursion briefings, by Zoe, were concise and to the point. Everything covered, to the point and not treated like children. I really liked the way she asked for questions, "Does anyone have any questions that would benefit the group?" Some of the excursions were a little too long in the bus but I understand that there were changed to an overnight stay. The guides were excellent. WE skipped on tour in Nantes and found a local street train. While we adults sat up like kids in a toy train, it took us through back streets and to all the sights. We will look for these in future. We have been to London many times and did not need the sight-seeing part of the extended pre-cruise but thought it worthwhile after a long flight from Australia. It was especially as our bags were delayed. The extra time, post-cruise, in Lisbon was best of all. what friendly people and great food. WE would recommend this ship to anyone, especially those who like the added knowledge of the lectures instead of "boring cruising".

Wonderful

Cabin Review

Cabin 740
Cabin was apparently recently upgraded. A little spartan as far as decoration but we were very happy with it. The cabin steward seemed to be on duty 25 hours a day.
