Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

Checked in at Dover this took us 3hrs processing did not start until 1 instead of 12 and then problems with checking in passports and debit card

We then encountered bad weather so all time was spent inside ship we tried everything but choose was limited and could not be classed as quality entertainment, after stop at the Azores and improvement in weather we went on deck 12 to enjoy the sunshine and found that entertainment on deck was again limited spoke to captain and said we were on holiday and did not need background music, Entertainments was to two half hour sets and 1 hour set which ended by 4 each afternoon we heard the same songs and in the same order over and over again

No entertainment staff on top deck for first 2 days then a few of entertainment team turned up and the games consisted to chucking a ping pong ball into a bucket, line dancing and chucking bags onto poles towards the end of the cruise we had male and female competition but all very third rate.
