Wonderful cruise.

Only 2nd one post Covid closure and the crew and staff couldn’t do enough for us. Absolutely wonderful job they did. Everything looked after including Mercedes taxi from home to airport. Super clean cabin, with butler. Replenished drinks fridge twice a day ( included in price). Three fantastic meals - buffet breakfast and lunch and three course waiter dinner. Everything included in price- no ‘extras’ billing unlike other cruise lines. Bar open all day, as was coffee and tea bar.

Excursion every day. All included and well researched. Good guides knew their subject and spoke good English. Mix of activity on excursions ie active and less active. However this is a cruise that is more active than, say, Saga would be. Ages around newly retired or about to retire.

Cabin Review

Good size.Super clean.

Shower, good sized bed, plenty of room in wardrobe. TV. Water. Fridge. Balcony, table and chairs.
