Great staff, from across the world. Must particularly praise our Ukranian waitress and her number two on table 153 in Waldorf Restaurant, Krystina and Ruslan. Also our super cabin boy Suwirka, who never stopped smiling. Somehow, in spite of our efforts, our cabin was miraculously tidy! Plenty of hot water, and lovely towels. And a great shower.
Food generally good, but good quality bacon ruined - I suspect it was cooked over night and then warmed up, as it was rock hard. And this ship caters mainly for "older" British people, but serves tea bags floating in warm water - unbelievable, but no teapots.
Entertainment good to excellent, especially the "human dynamo", Abbie, and the resident band led by Richard. Abbie's 30 minute session in Captains Club at 10:30 one evening spoilt by six inconsiderate and noisy guests at bar - encouraged by one of the bartenders. She has a great voice, but our fellow guests and one bartender acted like louts and spoilt it. The musicals were all exceptionally good - again led by Abbie, and (I forget his name) Joseph and the Technicolour Dream-coat.
See comments in review - but definitely better than good.
