Actually chose this cruise due to an engine failure on one we booked. Interesting ports around the Uk where few other ships go. Though this is an old ship from Carnival, it was well maintained and clean. Had an inside cabin on deck seven, and was larger than those on Crystal! Food was surprisingly good, especially the dinners in the restaurants. Restaurants were also open for breakfast and lunch and were expertly staffed. Great place to go if one wants to beat the crowds at the main buffet. Drinks were well priced, and did not include a tip. One could actually get a pint of larger (German) for 3 pounds 60 pence! Tours were also top notch. Payment for these were from 40-70 pounds. Only problem I had was with the crew members that were not involved with the passengers (stewards-wait staff, etc) Many could not understand English-tough to communicate with.

Great speakers. Interesting ports visited around the UK

Cabin Review

Cabin 7103
Large cabin with really great beds, TV, and even a coffee maker. Towels were a little light
but did the job. Large shower with soap dispensers. Although it was an inside cabin on
deck seven, we did not have the feeling of claustrophobia as the ventilation was more than
adequate
