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
Porto is old and unappealing but Lisbon more than made up for it, fabulous city
Vigo surprised me as it was far more appealing and attractive than I had thought it would be
We had freedom dining and were lucky to sit with some lovely people every night and had some great banter
We also sampled the buffet dining on Waterside and have to say the varied menu every night was brilliant, breakfast is very good there but seats are hard to get hold of.
We saw shows in the Arena and Havana and were thoroughly entertained
A couple of downsides
1 The smoking rules are largely ignored, especially on the top deck and on the balconies. It needs to be enforced
2 On sea days the top decks get very crowded and sunbeds are hard to get hold of
However, all in all we struck lucky and had a great time
Spacious cabin and really comfy bed
Lovely shower over bath
Spotlessly clean and maintained by Philip
Lovely town, beautiful frontage and great shops
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!!
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
