Astoria Cruise Review by 123bob

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2015
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

The worst cruise I have been on.We actuallyonly got to 4 of the 9 destinations which were advertised.

The boat was unstable at anything more than a force 3 wind. It wallowed and went crabwise. Internally it leaked in at least 6 places. Bits were falling off. If you put an electrical plug in the surface mounting came away when you took it out exposing wiring.The toilets often did not flush.Temperature controls did not work.Often the lifts never worked. A minor point that made me laugh - all cruise ,the toaster for breakfast for 200 people could only take 4 slices of bread and only 2 heaters worked.

Any complaints made the crew rude to you [ except the waiters who were friendly].The head office staff were even worse

Many people did not leave their cabins for days on end through seasickness. At one point the doctor had 6 people on saline drips due to seasickness.At least one broken arm.

The cruise started a day late with a 4 hour coach trip to Portland from Avonmouth [ where the cruise was supposed to start ]
