Ventura N933 12 nights Madeira, Canaries and Lisbon, 17 to 29th November 2019
Embarkation at Southampton on the 17th November was quick and efficient. All the cabins were supposed to be ready for occupancy at 1.30pm, although we were in E227 before then. Ferdinand the cabin steward was self-effacing and well worth the personal tip on the last day of the cruise.
E227 is on Deck 8, just above the Promenade Deck starboard side a quarter of the way back. It is an Ocean View with no balcony and its window part obscured by the mechanics of the lifeboat davits. However, it is as big as a standard balcony cabin, albeit without the balcony, and at £812 pp with free parking was excellent value for this cruise. Since, apart from the mid-voyage part, it was generally cold and wet outside, not having a balcony was no disadvantage.
An excellent cabin if you do not want a balcony or do want to pay the extra. Yes, you could occasionally hear from the Arena Theatre which is below and slightly to the front, but it really wasn't a problem.
Taxis are very cheap in Lisbon but some of the drivers are NOT multi-lingual.
If you stay in the main town, 3
Embarkation port, so no reviews.
