Balmoral Cruise Review by deboy348
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
- Cabin Type: Outside
Getting on and off the ship was not easy not enough wheelchairs, a stepped gangway,
Dropping anchor in open water and getting on off a tender in ruff water again not easy.
Mooring at a pier that could not handle sufficient transport for people to get off with
only one gangway.
In the unlikely event of an emergency I could see things going wrong.
3/4 hr late getting off ship to go on a shore tour which had to be cut short, disappointing
Cabin not as described in all the literature
They didn't send suitable transport to either pick the disabled person up from home or drop back home another 3/4 hr wait on pier with no facilities
Time ashore was to short
Having said that the crew, service,food and entertainment on board were with out doubt excellent. You could pick your own evening meal times
Breakfast lunch and supper were available in other restaurants.
Entertainment throughout the ship with a full stage and several acts. Many of the bars had singers and television.
Internet throughout the ship but it was expensive.
Two formal black tie evenings
And one meet the Captain night
Both very good.
You must use the hand sanitizer on entering and leaving most areas of the ship to reduce risk of infection this is not because the ship is dirty it’s very clean and well decorated
Cabin was made up every morning and beds turned down every evening
I didn’t use the fitness areas
250,000+ people have entered their email
I had previously aske if the beds could be put together and was told that it had been done,
but it couldn't you cant move the beds
