Air Canada did what Air Canada does. Poor food, and a 3 hour delay on the tar mac, scrunched in a corner with a cricket team.
Hotels: Edinburgh was the best part of the trip - mostly because of 3 interesting, but rushed tours. London was fancy and better maintained, but the excursions were optional and overpriced. (We were across the street from the British Museum)!
The ship is dated, but might appeal to older passengers. New tenders are a must, if Northern ports are to be included. There is no wrap around deck for walking/talking.
Due to inadequate tenders and inclement weather, my $10,000 cruise resulted in 5 missed ports, a cabin with thin walls, exposed rusty pipes (and little else). The ports offered in exchange were often travelled by myself and many of the guests so, of little interest or adventure.
Shore excursions were generally included, but not all - (as advertised.)
Entertainment was mainly covered by a few excellent speakers, and Richard's awesome cabaret. It saved the trip.
The overworked Crew were amazing. Many thanks. Are they ever allowed off the ship? Visas should be provided for them.
Would I sail with Voyages To Antiquity again? Do pigs fly?
