We decided to take a Christmas and New Year cruise for a change this year and it was a great success. After leaving behind the snow and ice of the UK, we were very soon relaxing in warm sunshine. The ship was spacious and comfortable and there were quite a few other ‘seniors’ on board for company. There was a full programme of events and entertainment throughout the cruise and the special Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve celebrations were excellent – especially the fireworks display. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the restaurant service was first-class. Just a warning that at the various ports of call we were usually in a dockside location and it was not possible to just stroll ashore to see the towns so it was always necessary to use taxis or the excursions. Also on the return voyage, the January weather in the Bay of Biscay confined many of us to our cabins for a day or so. But the previous 12 days had made it all worthwhile!
