Sail Date: Dec 2022
Cabin: Club Continent Suite

This cruise was chosen as it was sailing between our decade birthdays, most importantly catered for a vegan diet and as it was luxury, we opted for the suite, we thought we would be in for a memorable holiday. Well little did we know we were but for the wrong reasons.

Very Disappointing, Under-delivered on expectations, Worst and most expensive holiday experienced.


Cabin Review

Club Continent Suite

The cabin space was probably the highlight of the boat. We felt we had plenty of space for our things and it was nice and clean. The toiletries were pleasant. Note there is a plug on the side of the desk that can take european plug converter. The one above the fridge appeared to be american. There is a USB charging point below the bedside light.

Note the only drinks free from the fridge in the suite appeared to be the coca-cola (soda's to use the American terminology)

You get a bottle of sparkling wine on embarkation in the suite.

You get the choice of a bottle of spirits from the list.

We did get cakes or such like left in the room but not eaten as not sure they were vegan friendly or not.

Afternoon tea is served to the cabin if you are there. Once I was in there at the time it was being served but sadly no soya milk on the butlers tray so did not partake in the offering.

The stateroom attendant was lovely and very helpful bringing me ice to help with a sprain I had after a fall on one of the trips.

Suite guests also got a free laundry service every 7 days - very handy.

Wifi - we did get free minutes (240 I think) as suite guests but note my partner had attempted to connect but couldn't and had left Wifi on his phone to find all minutes were used up once the wifi was back up and running. I had a little more success but you need to type logout.com to close the connection and/or turn wifi off on phone to stop it using minutes and fell foul of not turning wifi off on phone and ensuring all my browser windows were closed. I did not buy any more minutes as felt it wasn't worth it.

TV - there are free movies that you can watch on demand which was an ok selection but nothing to write home about.

There were tv channels that showed news although sometime signal not the best and a few other channels that showed tv progs and one that had a film showing at certain times. There were several channels for Azamara promotions.
