Review summary

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise but felt the time spent at sea was a tad long. Some of the shore visits could have been longer.

Previous Embarkation port was Tilbury, and Bristol was just as easy.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was up to its normal standard, and I was able to have a different fish dish every day. We are in the Kensington restaurant where the team were very good. Also in the Waldorf and the buffet.

Very comfortable with plenty of room. First time in an inner cabin, and money saved paid for the drinks package.

Be prepared to enjoy yourself. Everyone from the captain down will be eager to help you. Don't forget to use Sinatra's bar.
