Last minute deal, cheap, did no research, should have looked at reports on BBC news from 2014 it would have given some idea of what to expect. Our table staff and steward were very good but they had very little ...

We missed 10 of the 31 ports of call

Very bad Captain (withheld info, broken English, rambling,..) He missed 10 ports of call. Tendering was a nightmare. Embarkation was a long process with no health checks at all. Provisions were not ready in Durban ...
