Hit and Miss

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
My husband and I embarked in Palma on the 15th June. The check in was very fast and smooth but being asked for 15 to use the safe was a shock expense we did not expect. Never paid this before on other cruise lines, how mean! We were pleasantly surprised by the cabin, nice and spacious. The bathroom was adequate although the refurb did not get as far as this. We also had the previous virus problems causing problems with the pools and self service food. Did not hear of any new victims during our week.

We found most of the food good but many of the desserts high viz in colour and inedible!

The entertainment in the main arena was provided by the ships own group of youngsters who put on a show twice nightly. Mostly very good but after six nights very samey. One comedy night very good. The band in the Medusa lounge were very good. As mentioned before and a big problem - bar staff. Not enough of them, long waits and no bar menus, why? Cabin staff great, always overworked More and underpaid.

Excursions good and not overpriced. Saint Raphael stop proved a problem getting back to ship. The tenders had a slow turnover making a long wait on the shore to return. Not good for the elderly and infirm in the searing heat. No assistance given by crew nearby to needy. Less
