Definitely recommend!

"We just wanted to say a personal thank you for an excellent holiday, the ship is spotless, ship-shape and in Bristol fashion, the crew, waiters, waitresses, cleaners and engineers have all been welcoming, friendly, kind, helpful and discreet; all very professional and great fun with excellent humour. We particularly liked the intimate feel of the ship which made for a stress less and unhurried Cruise. The holiday has been a great success mostly thanks to your good ship and crew. I would definitely recommend ms Switzerland II.
