Our first time on a ship with only about 70 passengers, but we were still very satisfied with the excellent food, terrific personalized service from the crew and staff, the quality of the ship, the intriguing ports of call, and the well-organized tours. And we even had several nights of local entertainment. I highly recommend this ship and cruise. You will feel more movement on a smaller ship, but we actually like that, reminding us that we were on the ocean.
The breakfasts were served buffet-style, with a wide variety of choices. The dinners were waiter-served, with menu choices. Many of the lunches were in the local pubs, with the ship either paying directly for the group or giving you money to make your own pub choice.
You will see lots of local color and historical sites in England, Wales, N. Ireland, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland. All beautiful areas.
We also very much enjoyed the Irish Whiskey and Scotch Whiskey distillery tours (and tasting).
Vantage Travel did an excellent job of arranging and leading the whole tour experience.
Minimal control of the a/c temp, but still a nice cabin. The bath was a bit nicer and bigger than in ships of larger size.
