Sunset from my balcony

Well I had a wonderful cruise aboard this fine old lady of a ship!

I expected a friendly well run ship and that's exactly what I got. Really wonderful cabin - large and kept spotlessly clean by Nim who couldn't do enough for me (and reocmmend the wash and fold service at the end of the cruise, done so well didn't need to iron anything!)

I'm used to eating out in London several times a week (oh my waistline!) as part of my job and I found the food to be absoloutely fine. No it wasn't fine dining and yes I could have picked up some points (the only one I DID mind was the packet mash used for the duchesse potatoes but did raise this at the time) but I was there to enjoy myself with my new found friends at my table and I definitely did that.

Cabin Review

Balcony Suite

Cabin BS

Fantastic cabin with 2 huge windows and a door leading to the balcony which had a table and 2 chairs AND 2 sun loungers!

Bathroom could definitely do with an overhaul and get rid of that shower curtain!
