Nice Cruise - spoilt by chaotic disembarkment

Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2020

Ship felt a bit “old & tired" – the stairs were steep between decks.

Tables not equipped for rolling – we experienced severe weather conditions where items just skidded off tables – lips on the edges of tables would help or some friction covering on the tables?

You can purchase WiFi – but this was relatively expensive and only really worked in (or near) the Reception area.

Cabin Review

Cabin 5046 (outside)

Reasonable cabin – plenty of storage space – we took heed of the size of cases, so all our cases fitted under the beds. Although not much shelf space in the bathroom. A hanging toilet bag was very useful.

There was a safe in the cabin.

The cabin support crew were very helpful – our Aircon was fixed immediately. The cabin was serviced twice a day and kept very clean.

Port Reviews

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

Tour was good - but the tender arrangements left a lot to be desired - we had to wait over half an hour for the outbound tender.
