Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower

We chose this cruise as it was visiting Oporto and Lisbon - well meant to have been. On the first sea day we were advised no Oporto due to technical failure which would be rectified in Lisbon. A late arrival in Vigo and evening departure From Lisbon to compensate! However with the speed we travelled on departure from Lisbon we are sure an earlier departure would have enabled a half day call at Oporto. Two sea days with little to do on board were rather tedious and we would not have booked a weeks cruise to have three sea days out of the 6 full days,

Otherwise we were pleasantly pleased with the cabin HA Balcony on C deck with a 10ft deep balcony. We had travelled in January on the Celebrity Millenium and the cabin on there was dreadful by comparison.

The food on board was of a high quality again unlike the Millenium, and the service from the restaurant staff and waiters on board was very good.

Excellent. Clean, spacious, large balcony (although part overlooked from above).

Centrally located and quiet.
