British Isles Discovery - apparently Scotland not included!
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
I wholly agree with F Howarth. We booked a cruise to explore the coastline of Scotland and Great Britain. We were taken to France.
Yes there was bad weather but with such a massive change in itinerary passengers should have been given the option to leave with a full refund or defer to another cruise. After being held in Liverpool for 36 hours 5 of the 7 ports were changed & the entire route bar 1 day. We were given two choices by CMV - do the cruise we've cobbled together or get off the ship & lose your holiday and your money - not much of a choice eh?
The food was decent and the staff, with an odd exception, very friendly.
This however could not make up the fact that instead of exploring the wonderful British coastline we were trundled down an industrial french river to kick our heels for 3 days.
The ship 'missed the tide' more times than I care to recall & the tendering process was More a lengthy palaver, waiting up to one & a half hours for a tender boat to take us ashore, by which time we had all of 45 minutes on land!
This was a very expensive shambles of a 'holiday' not to be repeated. Less
