Iona, Western Mediterranean and Atlantic


Christmas and New Year cruise 2022/23 - ship fully occupied.
Iona is a beautiful ship, however the soundproofing between decks isn't as good as I expected from a new ship. Our cabin was directly above the Club house and the noise was extremely loud til about 4.30a.m. Having been directly above Havanna on Ventura previously and had no problems with noise, I expected Iona to be the same or better for sound proofing. Fortunately both my friend and I are both deaf in varying degrees so did manage to get some sleep. I think the Club house needs to be listed as more of a night club or disco. The cabin was ok, the bathroom superb!! Fish and Chips in Hook Line and Vinegar were outstanding!!! Dining wise, we like to eat early and found if we went to MDR at 5.30-6pm and joined the line for "Happy to share or pager", we were seated quite quickly and experienced none of the problems other passenger encountered. Entertainment was ok, best acts were Ben Moss and Vocal Extr3me who were absolutely brilliant. The Pantomime from the Panto company was fantastic - an outstanding performance each day! We enjoyed our holiday and were lucky with, in the main, good weather. Would go on Iona again.
