Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Unpacking all my stuff and enjoying the rest of my 12 day trip!  That is one of the most relaxing aspects of a cruise.  Get settled so you can have fun!

Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the cabin. Really fun to stand on the balcony and watch the pilot boats lead us out into open water, and listen to the bagpiper band perform on the dock. Or just sit and read. This was our first cruise with a balcony; totally worth it!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Sometimes too long on the bus.
Onboard Activities
There are lots of options, but we weren't really interested on those. Although the bands in open venues were excellent.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Amsterdam, Netherlands
St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands
We went to the Guernsey Military Occupation Underground Hospital. Do the Castle tour instead.
Cobh (Cork), Ireland Jameson tour was totally fun.
Dunmore East (Waterford), Ireland
Dun Laoghaire (Dublin), Ireland
Not in port long enough to really get the feeling of Dublin ... nightlife and music. This would be a great port to spend overnight. Book of Kells at Trinity college - on my bucket list - disappointing. And Dublin "castle' is not a castle in the medieval sense of the word.
Liverpool, England
Museum of Liverpool fascinating. We did a tour of an old pilot ship. Now we know all about that.
Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland
3 of 4 did Edinburgh tour. Good thing we booked through ship because there was an accident on roadway. 10 buses stuck in traffic; but we waited for everyone to get back.
Le Havre (Paris), France
Honfleur was beautiful.
Dover (London), England
Dover Castle was amazing, especially if you are an English/Dunkirk history buff.


If you like to drink ... wine, beer, water, scotch, whatever... definitely upgrade to premium beverage package. Too expensive to do otherwise.
