Five nights cruising the Seine in France
Keith Burnand | April 11, 2019 | Fred Olsen Cruise Lines | Balmoral
First river cruise we have done.
Check in was excellent. Food was excellent. Staff were well organised and polite in all public areas.
But the cabin AWFUL No chance of getting any sleep when at sea at night. Noise from the engine very loud all night, I remember the sheer bliss of peace and quite when we docked at Dover. Had a good one hour of sleep before we woke up at 6.30 a.m. by the cruise director, informing us of disembarkation arrangements.
This cabin was on deck 4 number 4168. This cabin should not be used, although it was clean and well looked after by the cabin girl.
Can’t recommend this ship for any future cruises
