We have just returned from a cruise on the OPERA. The best advise I can give to anyone who is booked to go on this trip, is to break a leg or similar, anything to avoid having to go on this ship.
our trip was a catalogue of disaster from the moment we stepped on board.
Regarding the food, a welcome buffet consisted of cold half cooked burgers of some discription with cold chips. If only we had known this was a portend of things to come. We tried eating in both the restaurant and the buffet, I cannot recall one meal that was served hot. Complaining does you no good, whoever you complain to will go to sort it out, never to be seen again. The food was described as "Italian Cuisine", I have stayed in a lot of Italian hotels and visited a number of Italian restaurants and have never been served such a poor standard of food. The best to describe it is as a third rate greasy spoon.
Nice cabin, shoer you could only get a snake into.
