Thanks Jim interesting review and lovely pictures. Your cabin looked very spacious, far bigger than what I expected. Glad you and Sheena had a good time :) .

Thanks Dennis & Wen for her size she really was very spacious the whole of deck 6 was lounges seating areas with the lido lounge opening out to the back deck.
The MDR was on deck 3 which was a bit different but not a problem

Thanks for the link to the photos - good overview. Agree with previous comments that the cabin looks very spacious, airy and comfortable.

Nice to see pictures of Discovery since her most recent tart up. She was in a constant state of 'upgrade'. I don't think we ever cruised on her when there was no refurb in progress, carpet laying, lobby walls being covered, chairs being recovered, it all went on while we were asleep, ;) but I have to say it was always done really discreetly with no inconvenience to passengers.

Did you notice Lesley that the main show lounge has a properly tiered circular seating area, which does give good views of the stage? There are one or two pillars, but they are quite easy to avoid.

We haven't been on her under the present management so must bow to Peka's comment that it ain't quite what it used to was, however, there certainly wasn't free wine or even free water in our cabin last time we went on her. But she always had the feel of a happy ship.

It's a pity she's going to be sold, but hopefully will not be scrapped - she looks quite smart and trim at the moment.

Cheers Kath

I'll second that Jim. It was good to see Discovery from the inside again. We enjoyed our 3 cruises on her and have fond memories of the ship. :)

Great review Jimmy. Ship looks lovely and a great itinerary. I always set off alarms going through security no matter how careful I am not to carry any metal. Must be all my dental fillings! :oops: Now I know what to expect at Rosyth when we sail from there next year.
We watched Discovery leave Belfast and sail down the lough last Monday evening, she does look very smart. You were on the first cruise ship to visit N.I. this year.
