The experience started badly. Given the wrong category at the outset,given a boarding time of 15 00 hrs, finally boarded at 16-20 hrs
(having been at the terminal since 13-30) we were too late for safety drill. The first Port of call, Azores, after 3 days at sea, was too short.
Christmas at sea was a non-event. On reaching The W.I. each stay was too brief, We appeared to be last in , first out each time, leaving
too little time at each. It seemed even worse in Madeira, having been at sea for 4 days, we arrived in Funchal at 10-00hrs, long after a
Thomson Ship, and on board at 16-30 hrs and away long before the Thomson ship. Overall , Fair / Poor Cruise.
