Starting in Barcelona we did not have air fare or hotel the night before.
Good ship, but dreadful service. The cabin is OK, not too big. There is a
More than 500 (!!!) bad mannered children on the ship - horrible!
Unfortunately there was not a chance to relx because there were to many children in every corner of the ship. We used the balcony of our cabin to enjoy a bit.
Food was very poor in the "Atlantik" restaurants, it may be better in the speciality restaurants where you have to pay additional. The "pre-paid-restaurants" are all very full, often you have to wait half an hour to get in. In Speciality restaurants was always enough space but they are quite expensive.
Included wine from the tap is not drinkable, there are some good wines in Außenalster-Bar, but not in the restaurants. Staff is very often not ablke to talk english or german. When ordering anything in a restaurant you have to point in the menu what you like, otherwise you will not get what you said because youl will be misunderstood.
Entertainment is OK. There is a theatre and a shooping mall.
Pool seems to be big, but isnt´t because only 1,30 m deep and screaming children wherever you are.
OK, but to small.
