Disappointing, profit generating water bus

Sail Date: September 2011
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Southampton

Smooth and pleasant embarkation,2 bottles of water in my cabin with a notice on them, if consumed the cost plus 15% will be added to your account, cabin itself was nice. overall the ships decor was pleasant.

always plenty of seating in the lounges as the drinks were to costly, plus 15%.passageways to the lounges had goods from the shop displayed on tables just like a car boot sale (a hazard if there was an emergency). photographers were a nuisance really over the top and in your face. Main evening entertainment on stage lasted less than 3/4 of an hour. other activities at all other times were bits and pieces here and there, nothing lasting very long.Shuttle buses were very expensive.toilet rolls and paper towels were not being replenished on the last day, very awkward as you had to be out of your cabin by 7am. and sit around for disembarkation.

the breakfast fruit juice was very watered down. food was repetitive and nearly all luke warm to cool. the " free" drinks More stations, tea and coffee and water were on the 11th deck which had part open sides and was uncomfortable to visit after the sun had gone down as it was windy and the deck was usually wet and not much lighting and thy kept running out of sachets for coffee etc.other passengers were moaning a lot and when they knew this was my firts cruise the told me don't judge cruises by this one as this one was the worst cruise they had been on.
