Cramped ship Lots of horrible people getting drunk, the public areas smelt of sick. The food was tasteless in the main restaurant The paying restaurant was good however and the ports were wonderful This is the first bad cruise we have been on The buffet style meals meant we had fewer chances to talk to fellow passengers as people were constantly on the move. I prefer a set menu with a chance to chat before courses with other passengers We have been on other cruises, this was the worse. I would be OK with this had the cruise been cheap, but for the same price we had two weeks on p&o last year with spending money which covered our drinks. P&o was better value and the people were pleasant. Likewise cruise and maritime and Thompson dream were also good Island escape was butlins on sea Didn't do any excursions as we planned our own trips Entertainment was mixed but spoiled by the awful passengers
