Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: Canary Islands
  • Cabin Type: Interior

Wanted a longer cruise outside the school holiday. Never been to the Canaries before. The ship was Beaty with a lot of decoration and art. Clean and good taken care of. Our incide cabin had everything we needed and a lot of places to store our things, perfectly located on deck nine between the two lifts. Our stateroom attendant Ida did a Great job and kept it clean and was so nice to us all the time. Had read so many reviews about the need of upgrade, but that was not my experience. Always chairs available outside and it was never difficult to swim in the three pools or find a place in one of the jacuzzi.

The food was very good. Specially impressed by the food in Windjammer that had a lot of choices. Also had very nice food in the MD and very good service thanks to Luise and Felix. Did take the Galley brunch and visit the kitchen and can understand how much work it is for the people in the kitchen and for the waiters to serve all the passengers. Also had some meals in chops grill and Giovanni as part of a prebooked 5dinner package.

The entertainment was overall very good with some extra memorable experiences as the ice-show, the Barricade boys, Perry Grant and Craig Halliday. Cuddly was a very good as entertainment manager.

Only one bad experience; with the spa treatment with a big pressure of bying products, so don’t think I will take any more spa treatments in the future.

Did very excursion wit RCCL in Lisbon and Agadir. The Hippo Hippo tour with Anna in Lisbon was fantastic fun and let us see some of the major places. I don’t think We would like to go by our self in Agadir but had an very nice guide and did not felt unsafe during the excursion. I also think they was so pushing selling things in Agadir as earlier experience in Morocco.

The best excursion we had was in Lanzarote with Lanzarote Experience. We had a group of 13 with our very nice guide and driver Angela on the whole day trip called grand tour. We was able to see the Timanfaya National Park, wine growing area, cactus garden, Cuevas de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.

We also had a tour in La Corunna with Hercules tours, a two hour tour around the city. The other places as Vigo, Las Palmas and Madeira we just walked around the city, easy from the chip.

Will recommend Navigator and the Canaries.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 4V 9339

The cabin was in a perfect location between the two lifts. Was only in the stateroom for changing and sleep. A lot of places to store all the luggage we had. The shower big enough with sliding doors. Always kept clean. Even had a full length sofa, kettle and Thea/ coffe.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Southampton

Stayed in Southampton for two days. Booked a taxi from Windsor taxi from Heathow. The driver kept our luggage while we visit the castle for about two hours. In Southampton we visit the sea city museum very interesting showing a lot from the Titanic. We also visit the Tudor house. Dinner at the pub dancing man brewery and had afternoon tea at Grand cafe. Stayed at a new apartment hotel room2 Southampton. Had a wonderful time in Southampton.

Vigo

Nice walk up to the hilltop with a wonderful view. All the small chops was closed for siesta when we came back again but there is a lot chops in the Main Street we visited after a lunch on the chip.

Our guide Anna was so funny and we had a fantastic time. The amphibious vehicle took us to Belem were we got a custard cream pastry and time to look around. Then we entered the water and saw the Belem Tower, Jeronomos Monastery from the sea. A very nice tour. The rest of the day we went by our own easily from the Port.

Agadir

Nice tour with RCCL Half day museum & Berber market but the whole area is full of garbisch and I would not prefer to stay on a land holiday in Agadir. The beach seems to be lovely and there was not crowded.

We booked a group tour of 13 with Lanzarote Experiene; the grand tour. It was a 7 hour long trip throug the island. Made us see the National Park with the volcanic demonstration, the wine district, the very nice Cactus Park, Cueva de los Verdes an the Jameos del Agua. A fantastic tour with our lovely guide do driver Angela. Lanzarote is so lovely island and we will like to come back. Really recommend this tour.

Been to Madeira on land tour several times. Love the island. Walked into the city center for some shopping.

La Coruna

Lovely city. The Cruise terminal in the city center. Had booked a two hourtrip with Hercules tours and this was a nice and informative tour. 4 stops to go out and walk around and take photos. Recommend
