Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2012
Cabin: Single Outside

I Flew to Montego Bay from London (Gatwick)on a Pullmantur charter Boeing 747 in premium (business) class. Excellent travel on this flight and on the return.

The "Balmoral" is an older vessel but has been well maintained over the years. It is comfortable and is unpretentious.

The itinerary took to Colon, Panama - transited the Panama Canal - visited Costa Rica, Nicaragua and El Salvador in Central America. We then turned South to visit Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Falkland Islands, Uruguay and Brazil in South America.

Cabin Review

Single Outside

Cabin K

K grade cabin was spacious with ample storage and hanging space. Picture window was an asset. The air conditioning was very effective and the cabin was quiet.
