Review summary

We enjoyed the ports and itinerary. Ship is attractive and easy to navigate. Entertainment was very good. The two tours we booked through ship was very good. Had problems with embarkation and room location was not good. Very noisy and far away from everything. We would recommend the cruise. Biggest problem is that you never have enough time in port!

Do not choose this location. It is one of the last cabins towards the front right above the area where the captain crew guides the ship and drops anchor. It is very noisy early in the morning. We rarely had a good night's sleep.

Ship tip

The classic drink package was very nice and adequate. Be prepared to pay for shuttle, taxi or transport into town from port. The port locations were usually far away from town and activities. There is a lot of walking at these ports.

Ports of call

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Purchase Holland Pass to skip lines and get into museums easily. Beware of bikers!! they are everywhere and do not stop.

St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands

Victor Hugo house tour was great. Wish we had taken a driving tour around the island.

Cobh (Cork), Ireland

Not much to do in Cork. The hop on hop off buses were cancelled! Glad we did take tour to Blarney Castle as everyone that went did not have time to go up the tower. Probably best to take a countryside tour instead.

Dunmore East (Waterford), Ireland

Dover (London), England

5 out of 5
Shuttle service took too long. Not organized. Don't waste your time, better to get a taxi. Dover Castle was fantastic. Expect to spend 2-3 hours there. Wish we could have hiked the trails but ran out of time.
