Sail Date: Jan 2016
Cabin: Balcony

We received good service on an old ship that needs refurbishing. There are visible signs of ageing, some rust, dirty carpets, old and simple furniture. This ship lacks the elegance I saw on other cruises.

The room service was excellent. Entertainment was pretty good. The food was good but the selection reflected the effort of cutting expenses. The hot tubs were old like the whole ship and the water was warm but not hot, providing almost no control for users. Dining had one menu the same for every day and another only for the day. The quality of the served food at dining did not exceed the quality of food at the buffet area. At the buffet area no trays were provided and plates were really cheap. The buffet area is undersized to the number of passengers.

The cabin was good, the bed was comfortable. There was not much to see at the ports we stopped but this comes from the route we selected. The short excursion prices were outrageous. We took one only but even this was a waste of money. Both embarkation and disembarkation were well organized. It surprised us taking away our passports at embarkation. I did not like it at all.
