This was our first Cruise with Fred Olsen. Most impressed. Despite being a small ship, the ship and the cruse organisation were quite superb. The staff were perhaps the friendliest we have encountered on other cruises, They were very attentive and were always ready to assist those need ing help Though the main entertainment was not as good as the bigger ships, the secondary entertainment was very good, and there was more than enough to do on sea days. Absolutely brilliantt cruise. We used the cruise because of the fabulous Cadiz Carnival, which is easily accessible. We didn't need to do shore excursions as we have visited the ports. We enjoyed the dining experience as you had a choice of waiter service or self service, iin one dining room. On bigger ships you don't have that option. This was a much nicer experience. We would definitely cruise with Fred Olsen again
