We have never cruised before & saw this Virgin cruise on the Valiant Lady going from Portsmouth. Good music on board, convenience of Portsmouth, we were sold. What a ship, very modern, fab roomy cabin, staff super helpful, food outstanding. Spotlessly clean public areas, loads of different areas to explore. We like to relax on holiday, we aren’t too formal & this cruise does it for us. So many eating venues. It gets top marks from us.
Great facilities for the sporty & for those of us who just like to walk & relax in the sun, this ship covers both bases. Lovely walkway on the top deck to walk, jog or run round. Plenty of sun beds around the pools or set in quieter locations. Plus bars inside & outside everywhere with great staff. As for the food, there are some restaurants you book & some with no booking needed. If you have a problem with booking, sailor services help. We haven’t had one disappointing meal & I’m a fussy eater!
Big comfy bed. TV with plenty of films to watch. Fresh water every day (not well one day & the steward called by twice to see If we needed more water or anything else). Great shower. Quite spacious for a cabin. If I must criticise, my other half felt the sink was small! All kept scrupulously clean.
