The cruise itself was enjoyable

Unfortunately we were the only 2 English people on board, others were a large group of French, some others from Germany, Sweden Switzerland, and 4 from Spain. Sat on a table on our own, and hardly anyone spoke to us.Cruise staff all very friendly and spoke to us in English.
