This was our first cruise and a test to see if we liked it. Rough seas the first night meant we felt a little queasy despite taking seasickness tablets, however after that we were fine. Seasoned travellers told us bigger ships handled the seas better. The experience for us was amazing. Our twin inner cabin was plenty big enough with a good amount of storage. A very clean ship with very friendly staff. Great food and great entertainment. The activities were fun and varied.There was nothing we weren't happy with. The cruise had a WW1 theme and the passengers were mostly over 60s which suited us as we are too! If we had to make a complaint it would be the constant smell of cigarette smoke on our deck (Baltic Deck). Also some passengers were smoking right under the 'no smoking' signs! We hadn't even arrived home before we started talking about our next cruise!

Great first time experience
