Thanks to everyone who wrote in. we are now back from a very enjoyable croise. The ship was clean and very comfortable. There was no shortage of room anywhere despite having over 400 children on the Red Sea cruise with us. Their behaviour was a credit to their schools and parents and many passengers actually enjoyed having them with us! The tours were very expensive and not always worth the money. Excellent on board lectures.

It,s a very low passenger space ratio, so if the ship is fully booked space in public roms and on deck will be tight.

The Berlitz Guide is not too flattering about this ship. My experience of complaining on Voyages of Discovery (not this ship) was that it is better to held your tongue. Y of D can be very reasonably priced, especially on offers when they are throwing all the tours in 'free', but just do not expect wonders. Cunard it aint .

A nice little ship, we did it a few years ago, and the weather was very cold. Voyages of Discovery are great, relaxed, and very interesting. Some super lectures. Very friendly. JMB Wolverhampto.

We took our first cruise on Dicovery V of D in July 2006 to The Baltic. We had a wonderful experience and could not fault any of the services: food, cleanliness, comfort, lectures and entertainment. Every aspect of the cruise was well planned and orchestrated.We have since cruised with Travelscope and Fred Olse: both of whom also gave value for money and were friendly ships. Of the three, Discovery had the 'edge' but was a little more 'formal' and not so 'intimate' as the other two.I would recommend V of D. You should have a good experience.

Your River Cruise Questions An...

By Hannah Wilson

 Any one who has followed my Blog over the years knows that my favourite type of cruising is river cruising.
