Balmoral Cruise Review by flowers5959

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2015
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Outside

The price for two cabins were over priced as we were given cabins on the front of ship with port holes only. Cabins 5003 5001 Two Adults and three children. Cabins very dark . We were advised of children's club when booking only to find upon our arrival on the ship that they had indeed a kids club but the children had to be accompanied by an adult at all times. Rather defeated the whole object !!!! Main Restaurant staff excellent and professional .

Palm café and breakfast was very sub standard and staff tended to rush you out very quickly.

Very little extras in the room other than shower gal and hand wash.

The staff in the bar area 11th floor were very slow and although not busy we had to wait to be severed on and average of 25 minutes

One port La Rochelle, that we arrived at, we had to wait for a shuttle bus to take us in area out of the port for one hour only to find that we had to wait another 45 minutes to get on a bus to take us into the town the day was nearly over. We had only one hour in the town centre as the boat was leaving early.

We shall be looking for another cruise line next time!!
