The pre-cruise forms were very repetitive, with the company requesting the same information on different forms, possibly due to them dealing with Covid. The health side of it was very thorough, requiring a GP report, PCR test and a pre-boarding RAT. Check-in was reasonable although the departure wharf (a cement wharf) was less than glamorous.

A few fads revealed themselves during the trip. The "pots" used at breakfast were just plain ridiculous and should be immediately replaced with normal bowls and some actual soup spoons should be purchased instead of the current American style spoons for soup.

We were upgraded from Deck 3 to Deck 4 but, having previously experienced Deck 3, there is no way that I would have paid the (significant) extra to go to Deck 4. The main problem is that it's the Promenade Deck so people walk past and there's some visibility through the window so the blinds need to be closed a lot of the time.

Cabin Review

We were very pleased with the cabin. There only seems to be one standard photo of the cabin on the internet so I've added several to this review. One issue I've had on other ships is a lack of power sockets. No such worries on Geographer. There were universal sockets and USB port is flick out panels on each side of the bed plus a universal socket with USB at the desk, two USBs in the clock plus three other universal sockets. The lighting was also excellent with lots of downlights and reasonable control. One of the lights was flickering but this was fixed very quickly. A slim drawer under the desk surface would have been very useful. The air conditioning was effective and quiet. Unfortunately, it's probably not practical to replace the ubiquitous flat bottomed rectangular wash basins in the bathrooms. These things are a real waste of water.
