  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

Chose this cruise as was a very cheap deal, obviously get what you pay for.

Cabin was very outdated, hairs on bedding, hairs in the sink and floor was filthy when we arrived and wasn’t hoovered the whole time we were there. Freezing cold in room even with heating on. Loose wires on the phone. Tv didn’t work properly. Cabin steward was very rude and didn’t do his job at all.

Food was basic and not many options, staff in restaurant rude and unfriendly

Entertainment absolutely awful and of poor standard, show team need upgrading massively.

Lack of entertainment on board- nothing to do on board for hours on end in between the little entertainment they did provide.

Arrived in Amsterdam 4 hours late but we’re not informed until we were meant to dock so everyone was sat waiting and we didn’t stay later.

Disembarkation diabolical massive queues everywhere! NEVER-AGAIN

Cabin Review

Cabin was disgusting. Absolutely filthy and could tell it hadn’t been cleaned at all before we arrived and whilst we were there. Nothing worked. Room was freezing even with heating on full blast. Cabin steward ride.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Antwerp itself was a very nice city, easy to walk into the city centre.


Amsterdam was nice but didn’t get very long there due to travel delays which we weren’t informed of until last minute. We assumed we would disembark a bit later than scheduled time to allow for longer time in Amsterdam however we only had an extra half hour
