Great staff could not do enough for you from the minute you stepped on board.
Clean/loads of food of all sorts and varieties.
In all the service was great.
Small ship but well equiped.
Not enough smoking areas.
Excursions- the Morocco one was very bad indeed.
The guide left us in the middle of a souk (market) the traders were on all of us like wolves. We were told we had half an hour to browse. It was like a maze so all stayed close and in that area. We felt that the reps on the coaches were paid by the traders at the souk to take us to particular area of the market knowing that we would not stray for fear of getting lost (or worse) and our money would be spent there.
Before that we were took to a shrine type place, very unpleasant experience. Natives were waiting for the coaches everyone were set upon by the traders and guides etc who were very insistent. The guides went with you whether you wanted it or not and you had to pay them- some could hardly speak English so the information was hard to understand anyhow. The majority of the trippers were dissatisfied with this excursion.

If your looking for an inexpensive cruise which is good value-this is one of them.
Most excursions were good.
We had a deluxe outside cabin, would have only described it as adequate.
Lots to do, good beauty salon.
