MS Seawing

Your Rating:Four Stars
Reviewed by: Patrick Rogan
# previous cruises: 10+
Date of Trip: July 5, 1997
Itinerary: Mediterranean

One of the best vacations ever, our cruise on the MS Seawing was marred only by one very rough day of sailing. A beautiful little ship with spacious cabins and excellent food and service.

Public Areas
My favourite room was the cardroom/library on Mayflower deck, the perfect spot to get away from it all. The pool was small, but good for a refreshing dip. The area around the pool was quit small as well, but for catching some rays, the so-called Sports Deck aft of the pool, could not be beaten.

Food and Service
Have never tasted, before or since, such good food. The service too was impeccable. One example is that one night while sitting at the very back of the ship, our waiter Ivo was going to the crew area at the back of Boat Deck. He saw my friend and I, chatted to us for a while, then offered us some of the food he was carrying. All this at 1am. I'd like to see that on the QE2.

Our inside cabin on Atlantic Deck was very good. A double bed, an upper bunk, a large shower, very quiet, no engine noise, and a great cabin steward.

First class.

Palma, Rome, Florence, Villefranche, Barcelona, Palma, the a week in Alcudia in Mallorca. The tour guides were excellent, the coaches were comfortable and air conditioned, and the tours were reasonably price. On the ship there were fun activities all day.

Who Goes
British and Scandinavian. There were very few Americans or Canadians, although I'm told there is occasionally quite a few on board. I read on cruise talk that Airtours cruises aren't popular with our trans-atlantic friends as they are more used to Carnival and Royal Caribbean super liners, and that seems correct to me.
