The overall experience was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The crew were always happy to help with questions etc and were very efficient through out. The whole experience was really help together by the tour director/manager a guy called Nicola. He was superb . The organisation was top drawer, most days three excursions were offered which catered for most tastes the transport arrangements, the food arrangements during the tours, the guides on those tours were all excellent. English was spoken throughout by all crew, guides. The tour was made up of Australians, Canadians, Americans and Brits and all interacted throughout. We never sat at meal times with the same people twice which led to some very interesting and enjoyable conversations. The food throughout could not be faulted and was always well prepared and served by an excellent team of waiters. Liquid refreshments were available 24/7 as were small snacks along with tea and coffee. The mini bars in every cabin were replenished everyday and the piece de resistance was having a butler assigned to you. They made life that much easier and were there to help in any way what so ever. Tea/coffee in bed every morning served by them was a very enjoyable experience. The ship overall was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and we all had plenty of room to do our own thing.

Cabin Review

Cabin 226
Very comfortable with plenty of space. Shower and toilette were surprisingly spacous and always very clean. There was plenty of space to "live in" as it were and with the enclosed balcony we could sit and watch the world go by. Added to that the balcony window could be lowered which enhanced the whole experience.
