Plusses- Superb attentive and skilled staff. Good varied and interesting food. Cheapest wine and beer we have found on our 12+ cruises. Cabins are mostly on the small side but are comfortable and well looked after. General ambience - A bit like a big friendly family wedding. Entertainment is an economy version of late 60s spectaculars. The sort you will either love or hate. Lots of quizzes and other diversions. Dont miss the Dolphin racing!! As for coffee etc.. Its available most of the day in a public room but you could I suppose use room Service which is free but basic. Coming aboard coffees? No prob. they will serve hot drinks and snacks in a lounge. Some people have been known to bring their own coffee making gear with a suitable adaptor.[cant remember whome!! Finally, Fred's website gives useful info including a sample dinner menu and 'trips' around the cabins etc.. Any negatives, yes-, Rough seas makes this small ship move somewhat uncomfortably compared to the Gin-Palaces' but princey is after all a real ship unlike those blocksaflats. Enjoy because if you do then, like us, Fred will have another two converts for life!
