Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was exceptional and if you couldn't find something that you like, it wasn't the ship's fault.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
1. Weather was too cold to enjoy much swimming. Could use an enclosed pool. 2. Miniature golf course was disabled and only putting green was available. Disappointing!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Performers were outstanding (singers, dancers, musicians and comedians).

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Waiter (John) and Assistant (Tek) were totally above the expected and we've had some great ones over the past 20 cruises.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
My wife really enjoyed the orchids in all the restrooms.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
A little compact but makes for family togetherness.

Spike Island tour was exciting and memorable.

Dublin, Ireland

Belfast, Northern Ireland

5 out of 5
Hillsborough Castle was an enjoyable experience.

Liverpool, England

5 out of 5
Walking through Liverpool on the Pub visit was a lot of fun and staggering back was even more fun.

Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland

4 out of 5
No excursion, just walked through Greenock in the rain. Weather dampened this endeavor.

Invergordon (Inverness & Loch Ness), Scotland

5 out of 5
Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle Ruins was very interesting. Thought I saw Nellie!

South Queensferry (Edinburgh), Scotland

5 out of 5
Royal Mile Walking Tour and Holyrood Palace visit was enchanting and saw where Harry Potter concept probably originated.

Le Havre (Paris), France

5 out of 5
No excursion, just took the shuttle and walked the town with stops at the bakery for pastries and lunch by the waterway in the park. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very efficient and even ahead of scheduled time.
