Disappointed: Balmoral Cruise Review by ancient
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Canary Islands
The itinerary was very good as it included the Verde Islands, a one-off visit is recommended.
The £10 all-inclusive charge is well worth it if you drink more than 2 glasses of wine each day.
Our disappointment came when it came to dining.
No More problem with breakfast but lunch and dinner, a different story. Selection on menue and at the buffet was very limited. The portions and selections at dinner were limited in size and choice. The average age was in the 70's and the chef must have thought we were all on restricted diets. Veg served was usually carrots and brochlili. Potatoes served cold. I was confined for 3 days and food served to the cabin was always cold.The medical staff were excellent.
The staff on board were excellent, as they have always have been on Fred Olsen ships. Shame about the chef.
Will check to see who is Chef next time we sail with them. Less
Well spaced and good size
