We chose this cruise because all the ports were new to us! Sailed from Dover in July (Britain was at the beginning of a heatwave) and visited Brest, Montoir (St. Nazaire), Bordeaux (overnight), La Pallice (La Rochelle) and Le Havre. Absolutely marvellous! Into the Bay of Biscay and you wouldn't know that we were on a ship. Dead calm.
Entertainment? Fair to middling. The classical
quartet, Excellent! We'd seen them before and the "Lirica Piano
Quartet" were magic!
We had the pleasure of joining up with an old cruising friend Shirley, who we had been on several previous Saga cruises with, and shared a table with her throughout the cruise (and a few laughs). We'll see her again next year on the Sapphire.
Stayed on board for the next cruise, A
