Reasons for trip

Special occasion

We were on the same cruise as Carole Tidball the lady who has written blogs for Silver Travel Advisor, including this one for the trip we were on

Whilst I agree with most of her article (and I think she has been very professional in her review) I would add that she had the benefit of a table for two at mealtimes and as far as I could tell was the only passenger to have this treat, we were assigned a table for 6 (8 being the only other option!) this would enhance a persons experience of a major part of the cruise, we liked our dinner companions, but didn’t always want to share conversations but we had no choice and heaven forbid if you don’t like your companions!

I appreciate this is apparently part of the cruise experience for some, but it would be nice to have a choice.

There were other aspects that were not perfect but on the whole the cruise itself is amazing, but I would definitely chose another company for some of the cruise was spoilt for us by an overbearing ‘cruise manager’ who it appeared to us and a few other guests snapped at people on a daily basis and barked orders as if we were naughty three year olds.
