You get what you pay for ... sometimes!
Destination: Baltic Sea
Thankfully, as we were continuing on to London from disembarkation in Dover, I had privately arranged a car/driver to show us Dover, Canterbury, Leeds and other sights along the way before taking us on into London. That was a mere $430 compared to what I could have arranged via the ship in the neighborhood of $1000. Need I say, if you want a tour of any kind, arrange it with a reputable company elsewhere. You'll get more bang for your buck and not be stuck with 40 other people who can't keep up or are constantly complaining. In retrospect, this wasn't an "expensive" cruise and I suppose we got what we paid for, but there was no ambience or charm involved anywhere. In fact, the main desk seemed clueless when it came to most things and often acted as if they were doing you a favor to listen to your questions while most answers were totally ambiguous at best . Everyone was more interested in signing you up for another cruise in the future. In most cases, one felt like cattle being herded along and it wasn't pretty. Additionally, what was up with repaneling the "wood veneers" along the hallways for two days (on our cabin level at least) on an almost brand new ship? Work started at 7:00 a.m. and continued all day long - very noisy and difficult to climb over! I'll be reading far more recommendations before my next cruise! Less
