food hell

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
My wife and I had booked a cruise to the Amazon for January 2014 on The Marco Polo and then booked the Mediterranean Gold on the Marco Polo to see what the ship was like . The ship,crew and entertainment was good but the food was awful, for breakfast you had to ask for Weetabix in the Bistro and it came from a standard multi pack from a naked hand so much for hygiene,the sausages were vile to say the least and the bacon was served up in a large steel bowl which meant it was all stuck together and difficult to pick up, omelette's and scrambled egg were all made from powdered egg and the fried eggs looked revolting.

We were on a table for eight people in the Waldorf Restaurant table 67 and by the third night there were only two people using it as the food was tasteless and bland and the meat was tough or undercooked that the six other people used the Bistro which was slightly better. I lived on soup and brown rolls and salad for the remainder of the cruise. One passenger was so More disgusted by the food she tried to get a flight from Palma to the U.K.

The Amazon Cruise is now in doubt and we may cancel because of the food.

I do not know who wrote the review for the Marco Polo Restaurants food as it is far from the high standards of P&O or Princess cruises.

I have had better food in Transport Cafes and Works Canteens Less
