Review summary

This was our first cruise and didn’t know what to expect. I had read reviews and was very apprehensive. However these fears were dispelled at embarkation and throughout the cruise. Excellent experience which we will do again. There are plenty of opportunities at each port to do your own thing with Taxis and Bus tours.


5 out of 5
Very smooth with minimal delay from Airport transfer to Cruise Terminal. Extremely pleasant staff welcomed us throughout the embarkation procedures which were smooth and speedy.

All we can say is Fantastic.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an Outside Plus Cabin amidships with sea view. We were surprised at the large size and Hotel style layout. The bed was quite big and very comfortable, I am 6ft 6in and slep soundly. The decor was pleasing to the eye. Adjustable air conditioning was great for comfort. Cleanliness was the priority being cleaned twice a day. In the evening the bed was turned down and reading lights turned on as a welcome to our nights sleep.

Ship tip

A fantastic friendly and homely ship, so relaxing. Ignore the minor negatives,

Ports of call

Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Canary Islands

5 out of 5
We did Cruise and stay and stayed in Los Gigantes

Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands

5 out of 5
We had a sightseeing tour of Las Palmas on a open top Bus from the Port entrance. Unfortunately the multi lingual facility on the bus didn’t work but with the flyer issued with the ticket we could follow the sights. A contrasting place of old and new.

San Sebastian, La Gomera Did not visit port

Stayed on board to relax and enjoy exploring the ship.

Funchal, Madeira

5 out of 5
One of our main attractions on the cruise. A beautiful Island. We did the ‘ Taste of Madeira and Cable Car (Funchal) excursion and also the not to be missed Toboggan ride. This excursion included visits to Gardens and wine taste and visit a lace making shop. A n excellent 4 hour trip, well organised.

Puerto Del Rosario, Fuerteventura

5 out of 5
We took an excursion from the port entrance around the North of the island, visiting the desert sand are a free time in Corralego, a very relaxing small town.
