  3. Celestyal Olympia
Our first cruise - never again. The ship is old, tired and should be ditched. We did a cruise round some of the Greek Islands. They couldn't get into Patmos. At Mykonos we only had two hours and for most of that it was dark, Santorini was so crowded it was like a conga line around the town. The cabin was OK, but very small and airless. There was no room for two cases, except on the floor. The crew were very pleasant but looked and acted like they were overworked. The food was poor, pretty much the same every day. They took so long checking us in we never got the emergency briefing at the beginning so we had no idea what we would need to if there was an emergency. The personal/medical form which we were told was so important to have completed was never requested. Several times we wanted to find a quiet space just to sit and read - no chance, everywhere was so noisy with loud music. We were charged 20 Euro for wifi which didn't work for most of the time (who charges for wifi now?). When I asked about the wifi I was told it was either the bad weather or the satellite was down - REALLY ?? We were sadly disappointed and we really feel we wasted our $'s and five days of our holiday. NEVER. NEVER again would we we use Celestyal.

Celestyal Olympia; don't bother.
