We arrived in Hull for the evening departure on Sept.9th. Within 10 mins of parking the car we had checked in and were in our cabin.Off to a great start. The cabin was nice and clean but dated.The cabin boy was super, he appeared to live in the passageway and whenever we appeared on the floor he would be there unlocking our cabin door. We have never seen so many different towel animals. The restaurant was clean but the food did not meet our expectations.the meat was a little tough. The resident show team did a great job in particular their GoGo Joseph. The comic was good. In Cobh a tenor got on board and was by far the best act of the tour.He gave a great rendition in the afternoon. The boat housewas in general a busy area for snacks and drinks but for goodness sake get some more cups. This was the only place on the trip with aq queue. The ports we visited were the main reason for our trip and they easily met an d exceeded our expectations. In general we had a wonderful time but some effort is required on the food.
