Review Summary

Long cruise.  Good guest speakers and culinary exhibitions.  Missed docking at one port (Horta) because of rough seas.  Had a few problems with structural noise at night and moisture (leaking) in passageways.  Food was very good and had a wide variety.  Pinnacle restaurant was good, but not outstanding.

Our excursion was cancelled. Cold and rainy. Not much to do in town. Have already visited Normandy several times, so other excursions would have been repetitive.

Zeebrugge (Bruges), Belgium

Need to start the excursion with beer tasting earlier than noon. We were caught in traffic on the return and ship departure was delayed.
