Ventura, Western Mediterranean and Atlantic


Having to wait for the results of the Covid testing were annoying, mine took nearly an hour of not knowing if I was going to get on board or not, after travelling all the way down to Southampton. Muster drill was a doddle. We had to fill in some documentation for our visit to Lisbon which upon our arrival seemed like a waste of time because no one was interested in the message we had sent back to us, certainly not the Portuguese authorities. Almost all of the crew were friendly, two of the stewards were not; our steward, Jason, was very helpful. Food and service was very good, except for one night when we seemed to wait for ages between each course. we had a good leisurely week, did our own thing in the ports we stopped at. As usual the shops aboard the ship had ridiculous prices and neither of us were impressed by the artwork for sale.
On the whole though we had a good holiday.
