We chose this 10 day cruise solely because we had never visited 6 of the 8 destinations and it had been some years since we had visited the other two. As we were going to be travelling as part of a group, the price for an outside balcony cabin was good.
THE CABIN - Size was as expected. We had an additional sofa bed in our cabin, other members of our group only had an armchair which is not really satisfactory when there are two people in the cabin. Our balcony had a restricted view so was larger than normal. Disappointed that there was no facility for making coffee. The cabin itself was clean and our steward changed the towels twice a day
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH - Although you can eat these in the restaurant, the opening times were not ideal, especially lunch if you waanted to go ashore. Getting a table in the Buffet was normally luck, particularly at peak times. It is a good idea to get your table before your food as the food is never very hot. The coffee was often bordering on cold too so look for someone bringing fresh coffee to the Beverage station. If you are English and like a cup of tea - take your own tea bags. Some of the staff in the buffet only worked at one pace - slow!
