Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Ship was full of glitz, computerised booking for dining, shows etc. Over-run by unaccompanied kids right up to midnight. No timeslots for the pool for kids. Windjammer, excellent as always, but over-full. Crew unable to speak much English, little interaction with guests.most crew recruited from different areas to other cruises I have been on, and again, not able to answer queries due to little understanding of English.

Bad value for money. Booked for the show. Got there, the theatre was full! Only offered seats on the front row and deafened by a 20ft speaker. Ended up sat on a step.

everyone we spoke to over 50 had the same low opinion.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin E1

Very good, even got a kettle! Lack of sugar and milk. No coffee. No fridge. Doors very stiff. Noisy neighbours.

Port Reviews

Southampton

Awful. No port shopping. A long walk, in Belgium. A taxi cost €10 to a Mall and train station.

La Havre is a joke. 1 tatty building. Small cafe, souvernier shop and a guy hoping to sell paintings.

Le Havre

As stated. Lehavre is crumby. I thought there would be a cruise terminal not a rundown building that looked like a wartime hangar.
