Sail Date: Jul 2022

We chose this cruise because it sailed from Liverpool which is only thirty minutes away from were we live. We usually sail from Southampton. This is our 11th cruise and our first time with Fred Olson.

I would like to start with the positives.

Embarkation was quick. Our luggage was taken off us as we arrived and was in our cabin an hour later. We opted for an inside cabin. We usually have a balcony. It was spacious, clean and had plenty of storage. We didn't miss having a balcony and would certainly book an inside again. The shower flooded the floor every time we used it. Had to use the towels to mop it up which we weren't happy about.
