Additional details

Sail Date: May 2018

we wanted to tour the British Isles. All the windows were fiithy, lifts out of order, toilets overflowed, corridors flooded, sunloungers black with dirt and torn. mattress on beds worn with dents in the middle. Connections lounge lovely with exception of seating, chairs so uncomfortable and you had to lay not sit in them.

Food poor, not too good a selection. Main restuarant food tough,chewy and vegetables not cooked. In self service never enough mugs, racks always empty and coffee machine always breaking down.

Ships engines broke down in Scotland and had to double back to get repaired. so we lost a day. Missed 3 ports of call due to bad weather.

Cabin Review

Cabin inside cabin

outdated and scruffy. wallpaper peeling off walls, carpet torn and sink had paint peeling off.

Was moved after 6th day to cabin 5162 this was lovely
