This was a 24 days cruise from Portsmouth, UK to Barcelona, Spain, travelling through western coastal France, top of Spain, Portugal, Canary Islands, Morocco. As always the cuisine was superb, the service was great. Many of the crew were new, they were most pleasant and tried very hard, but much more for them to learn. Many fellow cruisers agreed that after COVID the standard in Oceania has dropped. This is a coast saving strategy, we suppose. Fellow cruisers are experienced travellers, very friendly group, almost all are over 65. My photo was taken in Madeira, an island off the coast of Africa.
