Service from the cabin steward fantastic, Waiters in the freedom dinning very helpful, Didn't see the Captain around the ship except when it was Captain's cocktails

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Some area's of the e-suite a little grubby, some of the stair carpet coming away from the stairs. Other from that everything was brilliant.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin looking a little out dated, beds very comfortable, cleanliness ok.

Ship tip

Just go and enjoy yourselves, she is a lovely ship and sails well

Ports of call

Southampton (London), England

5 out of 5
Port fantastic, easy check in, not far from Southampton Town Centre

Ijmuiden (Amsterdam)

3 out of 5
I felt it was to far to travel to Amsterdam, plus if you wished to visit Ijmuden you had to pay on public transport or walk 3 miles.


4 out of 5
Free bus travel into town then left on your own to get the train into Bruges.


4 out of 5
Very easy to get to from where we docked, but the town has gone down hill a little lots of the pubs have closed and the shops.


5 out of 5
Very easy to disembark
