Summary: Our cruise to France (May 2016) we had an RHS Gardening theme. We are experienced cruisers aged 67 and 63. We prefer smaller ships (Braemar, Black Watch, even tried bigger Azamara and Oceania. Also once each on QM2 and Holland America).

MINERVA is a great ship, small friendly and informal. On board the 300 passengers meet easily and many meals went on for 2 hours or so just chatting with interesting well travelled well educated people. Mainly English but Americans and Canadians and Aussies also. This notably is a middle class ship with most passengers over 65 and older which reflects the style and ambience of the ship.

Do not be put off by this comment. Most are wonderfully charming interesting unpretentious natural people from all backgrounds. ITS GREAT. It really does have the comfort and modern style and feel of a Country Hotel house party without the formality - and that includes the personal service in all departments of course.

It's a ship not an hotel and it is not glitzy but rather well decorated and kept to a high standard. It is not crowded or rushed. The food was excellent at all times and varied. It was all about quality and service, not unknown dishes with fancy names.

Charming waiters will even take your plates to the table at the buffet or breakfast. Value for money? Yes, not cheap but worth it. All tours and tips included. Many passengers were repeaters.

There were a lot of singles who did not at all feel isolated. We will absolutely return.

Summary: Our Jewels of arabia cruise was outstanding. The staff set the atmosphere with their friendly and helpful attitude. The lectures and entertainment were insightful and thoroughly enjoyable. Our fellow passengers were all very friendly and the informal seating arrangements at meals meant we all mixed up and socialised well.

Minerva is a small ship which does not overwhelm its destinations and the tours are well organised
