Our 1st port of call was Madeira due to the bad crossing we were late arriving so the captain arranged an unscheduled party with free punh & entertainment as we docked, we were the tiniest ship in the harbour & by the time we docked madeira knew we were there!
The people were friendly, there were tons of things to do on board. i cannot recommend this highly enough.
No i did not fly home & we've booked again this year- the enjoyment of the cruise obviously outweighed the seasickness.I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Yes it is smaller, well compared to the old SEACAT is it bigger!
This cruise ship, ( IF you care to call it that) is locked in a time warp in every way, including the food, decoration, entertainment and in fact just about everything one could imagine.
Having cruised for over twenty five years, we thought , smaller will be fun !After being tossed around like a sack a spuds for a day and a half, we re surfaced to find the possibly 90 % of the passengers had never cruised previously and actually though this was a cruise ship.
I can not really fault the staff .However the days of one dining room, and set meal times are a thing of the past.
We do not need to cruise to pull out mouth eaten evening dresses to try to impress the passengers and a Captain that has seen it all before.
The food is passable but unadventurous and it was so so funny to actually see other cruise line guests take photos and laugh at the this of this so called Cruise Ship that really should be gently laid to rest.
Canberra knew 18 years ago to gracefully depart...so please Black Watch join her.
We actually cut short our trip after seven night and really could take no more of the terrible entertainment, and some Irish imported singers etc.
To reinstate our love for cruising we booked the the Royal Caribbean . Vision Of Te Seas again.
It graces the sea's with nine eating houses, all day every day lift the phone room service (totally free ) all night coffee shops, sport's bars, well being retreats, amazing HOTEL accommodation, Ice rick, 2000 seater Vegas Shows, clocks in at 180000 as opposed to 11000 tons...
No wonder we rocked!!
But not in the way we wanted to.
Unless you have never cruised before , and are happy to basically float , and eat in second rate style when give it a go.
It's cheap, and it needs to be.
Sorry Black Watch , but you are well past your sell by date today.
