We choose this cruise to experience Rio Carnival and get away from UK winter, overall we were pleased that we did.
Ship - public rooms and spaces were attractive and well kept.
Dinning- we ate in the Ballindoch dinning room, late sitting, the service was excellent and the food was good quality, and wide variety offered. We tried the Poolside grill twice and both times the menus were frankly rather strange. Asian menu -- no noodles, no chillies not much taste. Indian menu spiced lamb served with mashed potatoes, no side dishes, no chutneys -- not worth the extra payment.
Much better than I expected the photos on Fred Olsen website are very drab. But this cabin had been renovated to a good standard, double bed, small fridge and flat screen TV.
