I chose this cruise because it was offering the three Fred’s in Funchal. The meeting of all three of Fred Olsens ships. I obtaienes a late solo traveller saver plus and was allocated a twin cabin for sole use on deck eight. Comfortable and spacious, well serviced but with an obscured view. Meals were taken in the Spey on deck ten. Good choice at breakfast, buffet or serviced. Ditto for the four course lunch. Dinner was more formal, with five courses. Well cooked and served with a good choice. The beef Wellington stood out. I also tried the Goan restaurant called Vasco. Food and service were superb and it’s pity that Vasco was not better patronised.

Entertainment varied. The comedian, Lloyd Davies was very funny and the singer, Kirsten Osborn was also good. The showtime group put on three energetic and popular shows.

Talks were rather too nature orientated for my taste but were informative. During the day there were the usual quiz shows culinary creations were always popular.

Cabin Review

Good clean and spacious and kept immaculate by my cabin stewardess.
