Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Interior

We wanted to go to Ireland so we went a few days early to do a short tour of Ireland & then were able to see countries as we made our way to do the transatlantic crossing. The ship is old but everything worked. The cruise staff was great. Would have liked to hear more updates from the captain. We had to divert around hurricane so we missed 2 ports but better to be safe. Food was good. They provided a lobster & oyster buffet one day and a prawn buffet on another sea day. All you can East ice cream & pizza. Always food available. Not impressed with the shore excursions. I need more excitement than riding around in a bus. Had an issue where the excursion was on a Sunday & nothing was open. Great ports on this itinerary. This was the easiest embarkation I've experienced. The new medallion is great.

Cabin Review

Interior

Cabin ID

Very old ship so the cabins show their age. They have added larger flat screen TVs. We had black stuff coming up from our toilet. Otherwise it was a place to sleep. There is a lot of hanging space & cabinets.

Port Reviews

Greenock (Glasgow)

Did the hop on hop of bus in Glasgow. You do have to ride a bus to get to Glasgow. Not much in port.

Southampton

Nothing was open so we stopped in Salisbury, walked to cathedral, used restroom & walked back to bus. At Stonehenge it was busy & disorganized.

Brugge (Bruges)

Took a bus from the port & was able to walk throughout the city. Took a canal cruise. Get waffles, chocolate & shopping.

Bilbao

To the bus from port & did the hop on hop off bus. Bus didn't run often enough so afraid to get off.

Lisbon

Did the hop on hop off bus from the terminal. The blue route was long & not worth the time. Spend time getting off & on the red route. Have the pastries.
