Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Club Balcony

This was our first cruise and had been looking forward to it for such a long time. Overall we enjoyed it and ensured we had a good time.

However, our experience was marred by poor service on a number of occasions along with indiscretions from two employees who were managers.

Whilst the good old British class system is still alive and kicking, you don't expect it from the crew !!!

Cabin Review

Club Balcony

Cabin A2

generally, comfortable. Bathroom small. Shower tiny and water temperature control non-effective. Very hot or scalding.

deck 8 not good unless your an early riser due to noise from deck 9 above.

Port Reviews

Cadiz

lovely town to explore on your own. Enjoy a nice drink in the plaza in front of the cathedral.

Barcelona

easy walk from where the shuttle bus drops you off to the city center. Great atmosphere

Monaco (Monte Carlo)

beautiful place. A good walk up to the palace. It's a challenge but you have to give it a go and reward yourself with stunning views once you get there

Gibraltar

time in port just too short. Back on board by 13:30
