This was our fourth cruise line and, thanks to Freestyle dining, it is the best.
We were able to spend hours on deck enjoying the sea lochs of Ireland and Scotland without rushing to dress for dinner or being missed by our table companions.
Irish or Scottish music and dance groups came onboard at three of the ports, and the two sea days were packed with events, including local legend lectures and even a gospel choir on Sunday.
Freestyle meant seeing the gannets on bass rock, the sea lock at Amsterdam and the friendly dolphin in Moray Loch.
It was absolute magic!
