Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Food in the Moonlight Sonata was ok - we had a few issues at the beginning of the cruise with the temperature of the food ranging from lukewarm to stone cold! This was addressed though and it was fine from them on but it's something that really shouldn't have More happened in the first place. The ship was extremely busy - our first time in August and it will most definitely be the last (couldn't be helped this year due to time constraints). Lots of children on board, to be expected in the school holidays. Caused no problems at all until towards the end of the cruise when "packs" of young teenagers used the hot tubs in the Solarium (Adults Only) as a meeting place. We counted 15 in the tub and when a fellow guest remonstrated with them, he got a load of abuse for his trouble. Security were called and the lads did depart after much huffing and puffing! Perhaps they were getting bored by the end of 2 weeks! We didn't have a drinks package as we don't drink enough! I do find it a bit disconcerting to see people swigging from wine bottles at 8.30 in the morning which is, I believe, due to the drink packages. Still it takes all sorts! The gym however on Eclipse is great - we worked out every day. One of the best on any cruise line I feel. Entertainment was just ok - doesn't actually bother us. We saw a couple of shows which were fine. Tenors of Rock were great. The Spitfires House Band was absolutely dire - just awful, couldn't sing, couldn't play just dreadful. The jazz trio were superb though. Less
Cabin was fine. Bit of roll due to being at the stern and sometimes a bit noisy when coming into port. Nice balcony, bigger than your average being on a corner.
