Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Superior Outside Cab

This was our second cruise with Fred Olsen and the more we see of the FO fleet the more we love them. Fred Olsen's innovative choice of ports is a great attraction to us. After completing thirty cruises with other cruise lines mostly Celebrity we were looking for new stimulating destinations and FO has come up with some fascinating packages.

The highlight of the trip was the two day visit to Cadiz festival. What an experience. Colour, street entertainment, music and such friendly local people an experience not to be missed.

Malaga and Almeria were equally stimulating with lots of historical sites to see. Our penultimate port Lisbon is always a wonderful day and we always seem to find new and interesting things to see. Unfortunately the last port Vigo we just cannot gel with at all, so we usually don't even bother going ashore when we visit this port now.

Cabin Review

Superior Outside Cab

We found the cabin roomy with plenty of storage. Twin beds seemed to give us much more space than you would think we loved this cabin.
