Cabin:

liked the itinerary British isles cruise for adults only the ship is great with lovely facilities but unfortunately some of the staff didnt have their heart in it, some couldnt speak english which I though was odd considering it sailed out of London and was a British Isles cruise. Also the meals were very ordinary to say the least but the bar had very reasonable prices and the entertainment was first class the cabins were excellent with plenty of wardrobe space and storage space., we particularly liked the itinerary as only one day cruising with 11 days in a different port/country every day.The embarking and disembarking went like clockwork no problems with that, As well as they had shuttle buses waiting in the ports that were too far away from the main town.city we where visiting Very nice touch, So over all it was mostly positive with but a few negatives {food and SOME service]
