Review summary

Beautiful experience worth the money. If you enjoy mid size ships then this is one to go on. The itinerary was good although El Ferrol not one of the better ports. Lots of people complained about it.

Ship experiences

Headliner shows were good Roy Walker was brilliant (both shows were different) Pianist was not bad

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Well appointed (apart from plug sockets - never enough) clean and tidy.

Ship tip

You can visit all areas in one day so take the time to enjoy each one. 3.2 Laps of the promenade deck is 1 mile so do this each day you will feel better for it (if you are able to of course).

Ports of call

Southampton (London), England

It’s a lovely port and a lovely place to visit with loads of places to visit especially in connection with the Titanic

Santander, Spain

Lovely port and yes we did an excursion. We did the city sightseeing tour on open top bus and a boat ride round the coast

Ferrol, Spain

5 out of 5
Although we docked at this port we did an excursion to La Coruna instead. To the Crystal Palace. As not many cruise ships stop here they make a big thing of us when we leave and get bagpipers to play the ship off and then when we get to the fort they fire the cannon.

Oporto, Portugal

5 out of 5
This time we booked an excursion and enjoyed the city far better than going it alone. The visit to the Offley Distillery was great and tasting the port was worth it. I even bought two bottles of it back and two of their glasses

Didn’t do excursion decided to go it alone. Wasn’t impressed as it was closed. It’s Monday so never visit on a Monday.
