Vasco da Gama Cruise Review by SeattleSeattle
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
Our interior cabin 4117 was spacious, quiet, and very steady during windy portions of the trip.
Since George and I enjoyed every day on board and would do this cruise again, suffice it to say we really liked the food, entertainments, spa services, reading lounges, cabin attendants, cruise directors, casino folks, craft classes, passenger choir, afternoon tea, the informative lectures, and so many other aspects of this cruise.
The ambience was relaxed - like being home - rather than super luxe. That made the cruise restful. With many sea days, we were able to read some great books. How nice is that - cruising along and reading?
We did not buy a beverage package and survived quite well on tea, coffee, water, and an occasional Schweppes Bitter Lemon over ice.
Lovely cruise, lovely staff, a variety of cuisines, and at a good price. Thank you CMV!!!
