There are pros and cons to this cruise and line Pros: People to People lecturers from Univ of Havana onboard ship were very informative Troupe of 12 entertainers were all high quality, as were were their nightly shows Cruise Director Danny was great Most crew members nice and helpful Cons: cabins basic, ours an XE food mediocre...mystery fish at lunch and dinner, all meats dry and overcooked some of Greek crew members rude, Shore excursion desk rarely manned, so hard to get questions answered, especially for mobility impaired, as to what we could expect on each city tour Contracted food poisoning last dinner which hit at end of flight home, noro virus ( suspect mystery fish) but nowhere to report it as weekend and only way to report it by phone. Lost 10lbs and still weak 48 hours after...As you know, there is nothing to eat on flights. Had to be from cruise food,within 24 hours after last dinner onboard...what a send off.
