      Add your COMMENT here...I wouldnt worry some people think that when a ship goes in for a refit everything is replaced with fixtures and fittings throughout the ship and it is not always the case.

      I would not waste your time worrying,Look into the review and to me it seems the only thing they have to complain about is the refit,break the review down,1There was always plenty to do on board and the port talks were interesting and informative.no problem there then, 2Breakfast was a bit of a bun fight unless you went very early,we opted for waiter service occasionally which was less stressful.Just go for waiter service the no problem there.3Embarkation went like clockwork as did disembarkation .no problem there then,4We had second sitting which gave us more time to get our glad rags on and have a couple of glasses of champagne .We had a table for six and met some interesting people. no problem there then,5We enjoyed ports of call,Madeira being our favourite.We tend to do our own thing rather than go on organised tours.Lisbon was very interesting and a change to be in a city as apposed to a holiday island. no problem there then,6.Our steward was a lovely pleasant young man as were the waiters.no problem there then,On. a positive note we did enjoy our trip.no problem there then.Go on your cruise with a positive attitude forget things you read and have a great time.

    I am a little confused. The reveiwer mentions liking the ease of sailing from Southampton but states the last time they sailed across the Bay of Biscay was twenty years ago on the Canberra. How have they avoided the Bay of Bisacy for so long? Am I missing something?

    I love cruise ships, but there are times when a cruise holiday needs to be combined with a hotel stay or you simply fancy a change. In recent years I have been fortunate enough to stay in some rather nice hotels, and I would like to share some of my personal favourite ones with you.Cape Grace, Cape TownThis is a luxury hotel located in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, I stayed here last year during my first visit. It is elegant but friendly, and in the perfect location to see all the sight...

    As you know from my previous blog I have recently returned from a river cruise with Uniworld from Amsterdam to Rudesheim. You can read the previous blog here ;-/cruise-blogs/burkesbrilliantcruises/the-rhine-german-wines-and-bratwurst/I was rather keen to see what the quality of food is like on board compared to that of Ocean cruising. As I wasnt disappointed. The dining is all open dining on board – with no set times. Breakfast was served till 9am, a continental l...
