Ruby not a jewel

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

Embarkation was brutal.

The ship was very noisy and our bedroom wall would actually move when our neighbors bumped it.

Excursion tickets had to be duplicated because the originals "were lost". All excursions were booked at least a month prior to the cruise.

With all of the sophisticated computer capabilities, seems like they could see couples that are traveling alone and not place kids in adjoining rooms.

The real problem was the acute gastroenteritis that hit me on day ten and my husband on day eleven. The cost was more than a US emergency room, if you can believe that.

Servers, though plentiful in numbers, were scarce when a beverage was needed. Less
