The worst cruise I had the misfortune to take

  • Sail Date: May 2015
  • Destination: Greece

This cruise left a great deal to be desired- from staff that were unable to speak English to the pTassengers and the mis information they gave to passengers- probably because of language problems and poor training, the only staff that seemed to be happy and had a happy helpful attitude towards passengers were the restaurant waiters. However, the food served was very disappointing and also left a great deal to be desired. The only decent dinner was an 'extra-special' advertised at table on stand up card- which you had to pay extra for.

The rooms were kept in good order by the hard working lady room attendants, but the shower was a total laugh- once you stepped in you could not move or bend and the plastic shower curtain stuck to your body for the entire shower. The Toilet- well unbelievably disgusting- supposedly the pipes were too small to take any toilet paper -so that had to be put in a tiny pedal rubbish bins on floor in front of Toilet for the poor room attendant to empty during the day!

Entertainment- as there were only 250 - 400 passengers on this cruise and there was virtually nothing for them to do while at sea the only reprieve from boredom was the occasional evening show which consisted of a group of wonderful artists who danced and sang their hearts out to entertain the passengers. Oh yes there was Towel-folding and paper flowers instruction. The Pool was empty for nearly the whole cruise. Afternoon tea comprised of watery coffee, tea and scones that you could use for Cricket balls.

I had just returned from a Carnival Cruise of the Caribbean which was more affordable than this cruise and absolutely wonderful in every way, which probably intensified the poor quality offered on this Greek Islands Cruise.
