Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

The Ship, Cabin, Dining, Entertainment & Service were Excellent. Unfortunately, Travel that far is also about, if not mainly, the location and that experience. Ireland and its people were a found Treasure in spite of the shore excursions Nautica offered, not because of them.

For a Ship of this caliber and cost I expected hand picked and above average Excursions.

2 out of 3 Excursions were Horrible (Kinsale & Bantry) and we gave a detailed written complaint to the excursion manager. Their attitude was, "Too Bad, no one else complained." We’ve asked to be taken off their mailing list as other options at that level of travel will be explored.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Cabin PH1

Except for needing a little extra dusting in the cubby areas, I guess seldom used, it was a cabin that I could live in. Bedding was too firm and Housekeeping worked the bedding to make it comfortable. Couldn't ask for more.
