As we booked at last minute with a discount did not expect too much. Was pleasantly surprised, the Astor was very clean, staff worked so hard and had extras like coach transfers,when moored at docks, to city centres. Food was ok except for the breakfast bacon which was all off cuts and fatty bits. Cruise Maritime let themselves down with lack of info. I emailed before the cruise asking for information about the gift packages was told this was on back if cruise info booklet, it was not and emailed back am still waiting for a reply 4 weeks on. The first night on board we were having a pre dinner drink and waiting for our 8.15 sitting when told by another passenger that it was free dining with no sittings. We had not been told this and only just made it in time for dinner! I have emailed Cruise Maritime regarding this and am still waiting for an ackowledgement or reply 2 weeks on. It's a shame that the pre and after sales let the company down.
