Sail Date: Mar 2024

We have always fancied travelling on this ship and were very excited when we managed to book a balcony cabin for the eastbound transatlantic sailing. The ship and cabin was everything we expected apart from our cabin being at the end of the line for air conditioning. This meant it was subject to outside temperature, sea temperature and demand from other cabins. The cabin itself was a lovely layout and a good size which meant it was good to use during the day. The crew was fantastic, especially the hotel director and chief engineer to tried their very best to cool our cabin. We both enjoyed the food, the only downside being too many vegetarian options. The price of drinks were reasonable compared to many other cruise lines we have been with recently. The ship did use the sails as often as possible and we were even allowed the helm the ship. When conditions allowed we were able to climb the mast to the crows-nest which was well worth doing. Sitting in the netting next to the bowsprit was enjoyable. The evening entertainment was low key but still fun. The pianist was very good. It would have been nice if the sundeck bar had been open. Overall Star Clippers did look after us in respect of our air con issue.
