Additional details

Sail Date: May 2013
Cabin:

A truly awful experience in terms of:EVERYTHING on board:- herded like cattle at Harwich- passports confiscated with no explanation - when we asked we were treated like 'naughty children'- food terrible wherever you ate - (at times) cooked/prepared hours before - dreadful menu - monotonous salads with synthetic dressings - could easily fill a page regarding poor standards of cuisine!- Lido dirty with trip hazards- lots of health and safety issues including:- broken public toilet doors - report of passengers being trapped- faulty lifts with passengers trapped- trip hazards re carpets and wooden decking throughout the ship- etc. etc- many staff lovely - but many not - being understood an issue at times- senior management - where were they when there was a problem??- Richard and co - lovely - but really came over that they were 'trying too hard' at times- shore excursions expensive but goodDisquieted to discover that the medical facilities are privately run with no adherence to base country standards and monitoring - other cruise lines have base country standards and monitoring in place.Will never go on a CMV cruise again!
