Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Chose this as our first ever cruise as destinations and length of time ( 7 days) seemed to suit. I really cannot fault anything about our experience. We had a superior deluxe cabin on Deck 9, it was spotless and our cabin steward kept it that way for the whole 7 days.

The whole trip ran to schedule and the seas were smooth, which always helps

Guernsey was lovely, although it took an hour to queue for the tender

Cabin Review

Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Cabin AD

Spacious cabin and really comfy bed

Lovely shower over bath

Spotlessly clean and maintained by Philip

Port Reviews

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)

Lovely town, beautiful frontage and great shops

Porto (Leixoes)

Long bus trip in to centre, not an awful lot there to keep us occupied

TIP, don't take the train ride around the city, my teeth are still rattling...so bumpy!!

Lisbon

Fabulous city, just go and experience it

TIP, not far from the drop off is a funicular tram to the top with a great view, try it

Vigo

Very clean town with many and varied shops
