Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin:

We love the Fringe Festival and thought this would be something different and exciting to do. How wrong could we be?

Embarkation was smooth for us but our friends were held up because they had a very slow person who couldn’t type the information quickly or correctly and made many mistakes so it took them a while to check in.

Our Cabin 9090 was a good size (for a ship) but the floor was vibrating so much that it was impossible to lie down and relax, let alone sleep! We moved to cabin 9151 and couldn’t feel any vibration there. The staff resolved the issue well.

Cabin Review

Our Cabin 9090 was a good size (for a ship) but the floor was vibrating so much that it was impossible to lie down and relax, let alone sleep!

We moved to cabin 9151 and couldn’t feel any vibration there. The staff resolved the issue well.

As this was just a one day in port festival it was not a cruise as such, but it gave us an opportunity to experience some of the facilities on the ship.

Overall the ship is smaller than others weve been on so there was an opportunity for us to have a more personal experience. Unfortunately this didnt happen.

We love the Fringe Festival but the acts we saw onboard were more than disappointing and this would not help the ships reputation at all.
