Disappointed holiday was reduced by one day as ship was in Lisbon due to adverse weather conditions. This meant we did not visit Amsterdam the main reason why we and many others on board booked the trip.

Really enjoyed our time on the cruise, the food and entertainment were very good. Restaurant and bar staff could do with more training but overall a good holiday.
