Cruise from Hell

Sail Date: November 2010
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

Sailed from Malaga, Spain

Thankfully we only had 5 days.

Check in/out was good and fast.

Entertainment very poor, went to see Comedian in Theatre, only spoke Spanish.

Cabin very good and comfortable.

Food diabolical in main restaurant choice limited, poor service, ordered a Medium/rare Steak on last evening, so tough I could have repaired my shoes with it , complained to waiter who replied "That's how they come!" and implied I should not have ordered Steak.

50% of passengers, Spanish pensioners, who all refused to use Disinfectant gel in restaurants, they smoked in non smoking areas, when an officer was asked, I was told that they turn a blind eye to it, as they are buying drinks. None turned up for dinner on last evening, so they did not give tips.

Drink prices are exorbitant. A 750ml can of Fosters worked out at £6.20 which included 15% service charge and 20% Spanish VAT. Spent only £40 on board as I refused More to be ripped off, 5 days tee total.

Best food was cabin service which was good quality, well served and hot.

Two ports visited Toulon and Majorca should have been Corsica, some excuse "Too windy" Bus transfer to Toulon £12 each return,didn't bother Majorca transfers to city £6 each, enjoyed a reasonable priced litre of beer. Less

Ship docked in Toulon just docks and old ship hulks nearby. Too expensive for bus transfers into Toulon.


Pleasant City and Cathedral worth seeing.
