It is a very ,very ,very old ship and we went on it 7 years ago! Suprised it is still going! Very shabby, but crew and the food are FABULOUS! Many folk think this ship is FAB. Dont knock it till you try it! You may be pleasantly suprised.
It is a very old ship but it has a lot of character unlike some of the newer gin palaces. It has a very loyal following. What it lacks in facilities is compensated by good food and a most obliging staff. Being small it can berth in ports which are inaccessible to larger ships. I have enjoyed several cruises on this ship.
It was built in 1966 as a ferry and at 11 thousand tons it is very small and with few facilities. I suggest you use the Berlitz overview of the ship, available for nothing, on this very site. It is comprehensive and independant. If you have good sea legs, are elderley British, it may suit.
