    I am still on it, and it is the Fawlty Towers of the sea. It is going for a refit and it shows. There are no complaints/suggestions boxes. You just queue for a very long time, more

    Pleasant boat, good exercise walking on upper deck, and most crew very attentive. We booked a "handicapped access cabin" because it had great balcony, good space and king bed. Dining room more
