Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Superior Outside Cab

We chose this ship as it was leaving from scotland and was not a big ship.

Embarkation was good and the safety drill well done though i was disturbed that wee were not made to wear and demonstrate our life jackets on other cruises this has not been the case.

W were well aware of the ship and were pleasantly surprised at the general state of her.

Cabin Review

Superior Outside Cab

Cabin C

after 39 years of marriage i don't think i really would have chosen not to have a double bed and when we asked if we enquired we were told that would cost us £1200 more.

my husband booked it with out thinking in fact because of the position of this cabin there was a lot of vibration,this did not worry us too much but others found it difficult. It was always clean, the loo and shower room were bigger than we expected. the soap dispensers were awkward and in fat the sink one never really worked. There was plenty rom for cases. the drawers are plenty but metal and noisy. the only real problem was the awful smell no one want to feel one is walking through a toilet to get to and fro your room.
