Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin:

The noise in the cabin was dreadful. It was sold as a superior plus.

Day and night, there was banging, rattling and what sounded like very loud power washing. These noises would would regularly shock us awake. It was like having fireworks going off in your cabin.

This was not good for me, but it was very serious for my husband. He is 57 years old and an ex-marathon runner, but now has a heart condition.

Cabin Review

Noise levels were appalling and left us without sleep for most of the holiday.

Next to the winch room.

Stained carpets.

Port Reviews

Liverpool

We didn’t take a tour of Liverpool as it was our embarkation point

Rouen

It took us an hour to get into Rouen. It should have been 10 minutes. It was too late to get off the bus by the time it arrived at the Rouen drop off point as it was dark raining and cold. People were waiting at the bus stop with nowhere to shelter. Utter chaos.

Honfleur

Honfleur was a very pretty French port.
