Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Inside

The reason for choosing this cruise were many One the embarkation and disembarkation port was only half hour from home so we did not have any extra travel to join the ship.TwoThe ship Balmoral, we have sailed on this ship in the past and have had a wonderful time . The food,entertainment and ports of call had always been good. The size off the ship was also to our liking, friendly yet spacious but there was always things to keep you occupied whether it be energetic or a quiet spot to do a jigsaw or sit with coffee and loose your self in one of the many books in the very good library. The talks during the day also give a change of interest or where some of the guests took advantage and had a sleep. If you needed help there was always one of crew around willing to give you a hand. We did have a problem with the cabin on this cruise in the shower and the toilet, later we had debris blowing from the ventilation we where offered a change of accommodation but told no guarantee that the same thing would not happen, so we declined. All of the problems were attended to soon after they were reported. We now look forward to our next cruise with Fred Olsen

Cabin I

Had problems with toilet, cut foot in shower (loose grout between tiles). offered choice to change cabins but declined as no guarantee it would not happen again. Last day of cruise dust and debris started to fall from the venterlation we where again offered a change of cabin but again declined as it was the last night of the cruise. All of the problems were reported to reception and rectified.

The problems we had woud not stop us from cruiseing with Fred Olsen again
