Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin: Outside Cabin

We choose this cruise because of the itinerary and the fact it sails from Dover, close to where we live. We had never been to 4 of the ports, and so were looking for new experiences, we had visited 3 already, so knew what we wanted.

We had cruised last year with FO to Norway...what a difference!

Good bits....the restaurant staff were the usual helpful, attentive and able selves.

Cabin Review

Outside Cabin

Te cabins are small, but adequate for a cruise when temperatures are lower....not sure how good it would be in the tropics. It was compact, clean, with 2 sealed portholes, bath shower etc.

My parsimony paid off...going for deck 4 rather than a suite on Decks 7 and above meant that in bad weather we were nearer the ship's centre of gravity, and thus minimised pitching and rolling.....

Cleaning and servicing good

Port Reviews

Porto (Leixoes)

Its a container port, but there are buses and a metro to Oporto

Madeira (Funchal)

Pleasant town to wander around and have a drink or meal


Old Town easily accessed by local bus if you paid £10 to get to the harbour gate


Moored near town and public transport...good access along coast for public transport


Scruffy, run down and siesta time!


Embarkation good, disembarkation less efficient, but that is due to the Port of Dover, not FO

Las Palmas (Gran Canaria)

Close to the town and public transport to the Old Town (Vagueta)
