For our day in Hamburg we decided not to get off the ship as mentioned in my earlier post.
We spent the day enjoying a peaceful ship. Hamburg was the end of the grand voyage and therefore many passengers were changing over.
It was great to meet a number of people who follow our blog and page, some of whom booked this cruise because of us sharing what a great deal it was.
We had dinner in the main dining room with some of our friends. It’s a shame that they hadn’t been onboard earlier as that’s the only time we’ll eat with them as we have other dining options to do.
The evenings show was again performed by the Singout Sisters and was a number of 1970s disco tracks. We had a great time dancing in the aisles.
Copious amounts of cocktails ensued as we had a sea day coming which is the ideal time to stay in bed!
For our sea day we were able to look around the Aurea Spa ‘top 18’ private sun deck which offers tranquility with comfortable cabanas to lay in as well as a bubbling Jacuzzi to while away a few hours. Unfortunately it was too cold to actually sunbathe – one of the downsides to Northern Europe cruising in April!
On the way back to the cabin I braved the infinity pool. I managed one length – it was the same temperature as the sea!
As an extra special treat we were taken for dinner in the Yacht Club restaurant and dined with the International Hostess, Ashley and the UK Cruise Director Darren, who some of you may have met on the MSC Magnifica last year. The conversation flowed all night!
The food and service in the restaurant was as you’d expect fantastic! The escargots were particularly tasty and the desserts out of this world.
Our next Yacht Club cruise is the maiden voyage of MSC Grandiosa in November and we cannot wait to be pampered in the luxury enclave.
We have now docked in Le Havre on the final day of our cruise and will be heading to Honfleur shortly.
