Highs and Lows
France, Spain and Portugal
Pros: Excellent Food; Excellent staterooms; Intro to many coastal cities NW France and Spain which were very nice
Cons: Weak WiFi; Almost all tours without headsets so very hard to hear guides; Time available for many locations too short; provided meals on some excursions mostly not good
Lovely ship even nicer crew!
England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales
Pros: The organization, efficiency for coming and going is spot on. The crew, as always, gracious and helpful, Sonja in the Explorer Lounge actually found the tiny back to the earring that I lost and brought it to me while we were dining in the Compass Rose. Bathrooms are gorgeous, great layout and spacious. Closets and drawers for clothing were plentiful, nothing lacking in stateroom.
Cons: Some of the design on the ship seemed to be very disconnected, not the staterooms but the common areas. The artwork was very dark and though the significance of a piece of art is subjective, I saw it as very unpleasant to look at.
Baltic & British Isles
Pros: New, luxurious
Seven Seas Explorer
Barcelona to Lisbon
Pros: Assistant purser, Alwyn and F&B Manager Daniela were extremely helpful and accommodating
Cons: Rude service in La Veranda. Category H is smaller than the H on the other three ships and is a disappointment. Category G is also a disappointment relative to the Cat G on the other three ships.
