Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main restaurant was very pleasant, great food and very clean. Specialty dining was very good. Good selection of restaurants. Main buffet felt like a staff canteen area but with good selection of different food. Always plenty to eat.

Good room steward. Staff generally were very helpful and friendly.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The cleanliness of the ship was ok. Felt the some public toilets could have been better. Ship design- need a middle staircase of lifts . Strange that you were unable to go down all by stairs to get to the restaurants.

Didn’t like this port. Excursion was a waste of money. The coach ride was much better than the places we visited. Wouldn’t go back.

Cadiz (Spain)

Lovely place. Able to walk into town. Very beautiful. Place I’d like to return to.

Lisbon, Portugal

5 out of 5
Another lovely port. Easy to walk into town and walk around. The hop on hop off bus was a good way to find your way around.
